When I started searching for free software to modify my PDF documents, I came across a number of them. You will find reviews on several PDF editors and PDF mergers here on TWC. Many times we need to make some changes to our PDF (Portable Document Format) files. For instance, we may need to make duplicate pages in a PDF file or to split the PDF documents. A popular document like Word or Excel is easily editable and modification can be done quickly, but the same thing is not applicable to PDF files. You can perform such edits with PDFTK Builder.

How to use PDFTK Builder software to modify and split PDF

1. Open the PDFTK Builder application then click on collate menu at the top of the screen.
3. After merging the two files, click save as and give your PDF file a name. Click save and check the result.
Split the PDF file:
PDFTK Builder works excellently if you want to split the PDF file. Following are the steps that need to be performed:
1. Select the ‘Split’ button that is there on top of the window.
2. As soon as you click on the split button, split operation-related options will appear. Select the PDF file by clicking on ‘Source PDF File’.
3. Finally click on the ‘Save’ button to end the operation
Similarly, other operations like Background/Stamp and Rotate can be performed with the help of PDFTK Builder. Other than the above functions you can also provide a password to your document, which will help to provide security to your document. There are two types of passwords which you can give. The first one is the ‘Owner’ password which restricts the action that can be performed on the document by that user and the other one is ‘User’ password which restricts everyone without an Owner or User password to open the document. By this, you can protect your document from invalid access and operation.
