How to crop and split a PDF (in LaTeX, without using it)

  1. 1. How to crop & split a PDF (in LATEX, without using it) Nicola Rainiero • rainnic.altervista.org • rainnic@altervista.org
  2. 2. A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
  3. 3. I show you how it is simple and powerful the use of LATEX to split and crop iteratively a PDF in half, just editing a few lines of code, basically modifying only some numbers. You can use my LATEX template in Overleaf or in your editor. Here is the link: bit.ly/1F6r5H4
  4. 4. Online with Overleaf: remember that I post a read-only view template. If you want to edit it, you have to paste its content in a new project and register in Overleaf (the only way that allows you to upload PDF files). Here is my sign up link: www.overleaf.com/signup?ref=03181694e0d0
  5. 5. In your local editor: Copy and paste its content in your LATEX editor. I suggest you one with an integrated viewer and live update. Which one? Check the Comparison of TeX editors page on Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison of TeX editors
