This program first asks the user to place the pdf file(s) they wish to extract pages from into a specified folder. The default input folder is titled “Files To Extract.” After the input pdf file(s) have been placed into the specified input folder, the program prompts the user to select which file they wish to extract pages from. As soon as an input pdf file has been selected, the user is asked to enter in the page numbers they wish to extract from the specified input pdf file. After the page extraction is completed, the selected pages are merged into one single pdf file, and is saved into an output folder titled “Completed Extracted Files.”
