Ever found yourself wanting to extract just that one page of information from a multi-page PDF? Whether you're working with one page of an official report or trying to share only a page of a PDF, it shouldn’t have to be hard to focus in on that one section of your file.

And believe it or not, it isn’t! We'll cover what you need to know to save one page of PDF documents you’re dealing with and a few tips to make working with your one-page PDF seamless.

Let's dive in and take a look at how to save just what you need from your PDF and nothing else.

How to Save One page of a PDF

When you use Xodo, there are a couple of ways you can save certain pages of PDF files and cut down on having to constantly navigate and search through your PDF to find the page you need.

Save one page of a PDF by splitting your PDF

The first method to save individual PDF pages from a lengthy document is to extract the pages into an individual PDF file. Here’s how:

1. Go to Xodo’s PDF Splitter tool.

2. Open your PDF by uploading your PDF from your device, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Xodo Drive.

3. Click on Clear to uncheck all the pages.

4. Then locate and click on the single page you wish to save or enter the page number in the field below.

5. Click on Extract. Xodo will automatically start the extraction process.

6. Download your new PDF to your device or save it to Google Drive or Xodo Drive.

Save one page of a PDF by deleting PDF pages

Another option you’ll have is to delete pages from your PDF. This is ideal if you’re dealing with smaller files and don't need any of the other pages in the PDF document.

Follow these steps:

1. Go to Xodo’s Delete Pages from PDF tool.

2. Upload your PDF either from your device, Xodo Drive, Google Drive, or Dropbox.

3. Select all the pages you wish to delete, leaving the one page you wish to save unchecked.

5. Click on the Download button to save the new one-page PDF to your device or to Google Drive or Xodo Drive.

How to save one page of a PDF on Mac

To save one page of a PDF MacOS users can use the same methods above in a browser. Simply access Xodo’s PDF Splitter tool and Delete Pages from PDF tool to instantly tailor down your PDFs.

The best part about using Xodo online is that you’re not only able to quickly export a page from a PDF, but while you’re on the platform, you can use any of the other 30 PDF tools to continue working on that one page PDF file. You can do everything from editing PDF text to annotating the content.

Prefer to use the Preview app? While you'll have to switch between applications to work with your PDF afterwards, you can save one page from a PDF in Preview by selecting the thumbnail of the PDF page and selecting the print to PDF Mac option.

Tips to save and work with one page of a PDF

When you pull pages from PDF documents, your needs for that specific content can change. If you’re going to continue working with the PDF page, Xodo can help you get it done without leaving the platform. Here are a few tips:

  • Make edits directly on the PDF page. No matter if you’re adding a signature to a form, focusing on the content to review, or revising the text, you can easily edit, sign, or markup the content on the page. Xodo has a full suite of PDF tools that will let you work on the PDF as needed.
  • Quickly secure your PDF by flattening it. If you're sharing the one-page content and it needs to be secured, flattening your PDF instantly locks in all layers in the PDF – form fields, annotations, and text. In other words, you can ensure that no unauthorized changes are made to the content.
  • Keep the original version of your PDF. Be sure to use a specific name for your new PDF file to keep track of multiple versions you may have to edit, save or re-create. Note that when you’re saving and downloading a new one-page PDF, Xodo will automatically create a new file and leave the original PDF untouched.

Tailor and work with PDF content you need

Creating a focused document? Decluttering your files? Working with only a small section? Saving and extracting a single page covers all your needs instantly and efficiently enough to keep your office paperless.

With Xodo, the task becomes as simple as selecting your pages to split your PDFs or delete the pages you don’t need. Xodo keeps you focused on the more important PDF tasks. Edit text, annotate content, sign and approve contracts - there’s a PDF tool for any job you need to get done.

So, the next time you find yourself wanting to save part of a PDF, go ahead and try Xodo on it!
