Extract pages from PDF using Power Automate and PDF4me

We often come across a lot of big documents from which we require only few information. Some PDF documents like contracts, legal documents, or digital books may contain hundreds or thousands of pages. At times, we might require only a few pages of these documents. In such cases, we will have to extract those PDF pages using a specific tool. Bot all software services are capable of doing the same.

Now you can automate the extraction of specific pages from a PDF document using the Extract Pages action from PDF4me. Use the action from PDF4me Connect integration for Power Automate to create the Flow for automating this process. With simple configuration and zero coding, you can easily set-up the Flow for extracting PDF pages.
