How to edit PDF documents online with Sejda
For the purpose of this demonstration we are gonna split a PDF file at certain number of pages by using the Split By Pages option. Start by clicking on the Split By Pages from from the Sejda home page.
Once you do that you should see the second step of the wizard where you need to select the PDF files that you want to edit. PDF documents of course have to be uploaded. Once they are finished uploading, you should proceed onto the Configuration, where in the case of Split By Pages tool you can set the page numbers where you want to split the document.
We’ve decided that we wanted to split our document at the third page, so we entered that in the split by page box, and clicked Next. Sejda will then go through the splitting process and when it does its thing, you should receive a report with download links for the split files.
Even though Sejda is still in beta, like you can see from all the images above, it works just fine. All the tools that we tested have done their job well. Speed also wasn’t an issue, PDF documents that we manipulated with Sejda were processed very quickly. There’s no downloading or program installation of any kind to test this free online PDF editor, so why not give it a spin. Just open up the main website and start editing your PDF files online.
