If you want to work with PDF files – I mean dividing one PDF into several files and things like that – I got a recommendation for pdfrecycle. „What is pdfrecycle? pdfrecycle creates a PDF file by composing pages from other PDF files. It lets you define PDF bookmarks, scale and rotate pages, put multiple logical pages onto each physical sheet and add metadata. pdfrecycle uses a simple text file format to define the layout and what pages to include. From this input file pdfrecycle creates a LaTeX file and then runs pdflatex to produced the PDF file.“
