Have you tried saving files after you delete extra chapters? Sorry for sounding confusing; save the whole book, than, copy chapter one or delete chapters 2-10 (example) and save the new file. Open the full book, copy only chapter two and save as chapter 2. Continue until you have a separate file for each chapter as well as the total book. I have not tried this so PDF file may not let you just copy certain pages into a new file. I am curious now so will check when I get to the office.

Nettie's Nickel, maybe :)

They have been able to get a few to work after several tries but we still have some that aren’t cooperating. We are using Adobe Pro to break PDFs into chapters and make them accessible. Does anyone have any suggestions on what we can try? My only idea at this point is to print and rescan the books so we can get them done quickly.
