If you are using Linux, a workaround would be to save the document as a
single PDF file, then use PDF Toolkit to split it into separate pages with
this command:

$ pdftk yourfile.pdf burst

(for simplicity, change to the directory that yourfile.pdf is in, first).

You may need to install pdftk first, but it has other features, and is a
useful toolkit to have.
