Can I split a PDF booklet


I have a requirement to split a PDF document which is formatted as a PDF booklet i.e. two A5 pages on an A4 page, laid out as follows

Page 8 Page 1
Page 2 Page 7
Page 6 Page 3
Page 4 Page 5

Page 1
Page 2
Page 3
Page 4
Page 5
Page 6
Page 7
Page 8

I see that you have a MakeBooklet routine, do you have a SplitBooklet routine? If not is there a way splitting an A4 page into two A5 pages and saving them out as individual pages. I am working in .NET.

Many Thanks
Ian Tyrrell
