    Default PDF file size problem

    I've got a giant PDF, created from scanning a stack of hard copies on an HP 2600 eMFP scanner/plotter. File size is about 1.4 Gb - Acrobat, Photoshop, Bluebeam, and AutoCAD all **** out on it. Any suggestions on a) something that can open it, and b) something that can separate it into manageable chunks?

    Ouch! You've already tried the ones I can think of. I'd probably circle back to re-scanning the set: change the scan to lower resolution (unless you really need it as high as it was) and/or breaking the set into multiple sets.

    yeahm I wish i could scan at a lower resolution -- but the hardcopies have left the building, with the sub's stamps on them. Part of a Friday PM scramble to hit a deadline, with no time for checking. And the job was on hiatus since the 2018 hurricane hit the jobsite

    Chrome will open the PDF, recognize the correct number of pages, but only show/print the first one.

    I would contact Bluebeam support and see if they have any suggestions/tricks.

    You might also try this online editor. you can upload from Dropbox, OneDrive and it has a 30 day trial.

    thought about trying one of the on-line editors, but these sheets have scanned seals and signatures -- I am not comfortable with letting those out in the wild
