Split PDFs

Extract or Remove Pages

Location: Management >> Split PDFs


The Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP) has the ability to remove pages from a PDF, and to split PDF documents into smaller independent documents. All documents in the case that have undergone splitting or page removal will be listed on this page. While users can perform and view document splits and page removal via the Doc Viewer, users can also perform additional split and removal tasks directly from this page if desired.


  • Splitting/Removing pages from a document can also be done via the Doc Viewer.

  • It is best practice to split documents before coding them. Please note, the master document will remain in the system for reference, but can be deleted.

  • There may be data dependent limits on the number of splits that can occur inside of a document, such as file corruption. If you run into any issues using the split function, contact Professional Services.
