There is an option to delete pages in Adobe Acrobat. I'm on my home
computer at the moment and therefore don't have Acrobat installed, so I
can't tell you precisely where at the moment. If memory serves, it's in the
Edit menu. If my memory is wrong, searching the help for "delete page"
ought to bring it up. You can then delete all the pages that don't contain
the article, and save it as a new file.
