Message Summary

Users of Microsoft Syntex can soon split a PDF file into multiple PDFs with the Extract file action in OneDrive for iOS. The Extract file action lets you quickly split and extract multiple pages of a PDF into a new PDF file stored in SharePoint or OneDrive.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 117548

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out in late April and expect to complete rollout by late May.

How this will affect your organization:

Syntex users won’t have to worry about sharing unnecessary information from a large PDF file. Splitting a large PDF file into multiple, smaller files lets users tailor the information they want to view or share with others.

To split a PDF file in Syntex using the Extract action:

  1. Open the PDF file you want to split in OneDrive for iOS.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, tap the horizontal bar or drag the bottom menu up to expand the new menu.
  3. Under File actions, select Extract.
  4. Choose the page(s) you want to separate and tap Extract.
  5. Select a location to save the extracted PDF.
  6. After the new PDF is done processing, a Your PDF is ready banner will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap Open from the banner to access your new file.

Note: Some users may see this feature before others within your organization. PDF extraction is available only for Microsoft Syntex licensed users; users without a Syntex license will not see the feature. We will bring the capability to other clients, including OneDrive, SharePoint and Syntex browsers soon.

What you need to do to prepare:

There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this feature. You may want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
