[techtalk] cutting up pdf files

Gv can read my PS files OK, but not output individual PS pages that can
be converted to PDF (ps2pdf) and have the correct bounding boxes.

It cannot read my apparently oddly shaped PDF pages directly.  

In both cases, things get cut off.

Oh well.

    Hmm, load it up in ghostview or gv (if you have a recent ghostscript),
    select the pages and save them?

    Just a guess, might even be wrong.
