What are segmented PDFs ( ) and why should I download them rather than a full PDF? Segmented PDFs are available when a large document (eg annual report) is available as a PDF download. These files may take long to download, especially if one only requires a particular section or page. In these cases, the PDF has also been segmented according to sections, chapters or headings. Downloading the segment one requires will then be much faster.
