Keep chapter number of chapters inserted with \include
Can one TeX file output to multiple PDF files?

My document structure has:

  • 1 file with preface;
  • 12 individual .tex files representing chapters

Each chapter has lots of figures (2D and 3D) so each .pdf has about 250Mb.

Using the \include command I was able (more or less) to manage the compilation step, but for the final print step I'd like to have multiple .pdf, not a single huge .pdf.

Is there a way I can do this?

  • "For the final print step" seems like you're okay with a single (huge) PDF, and you're willing to undergo some post-production to split out separate PDFs. For this, the PDF toolkit is ideal. Not sure whether this is a duplicate of the linked post.
