How to Merge PDF Files


You can use software to merge pdf files. But before you can do so, you must know how to merge documents manually. You must be able to order them properly in the final merged document. And that’s not easy. Read on to discover some ways to merge PDF files. We’ll cover Adobe Acrobat XI and Wondershare PDFelement. This article will show you the most basic ways to merge pdf files.

Drag and Drop page thumbnails

There are several methods to merge PDF files. One option is to drag and drop page thumbnails from one file into another. Another way is to use the QuickActions feature to create a new PDF file in the same folder as the original document. However, you should make sure that you’re using the right tool for the task. Before merging PDF files, you need to select the pages you’re merging and open the file that you’re modifying.

Once you’ve opened a PDF file, you can combine the pages by dragging them from one document to another. To do this, open the file with PDFelement’s “Open files” button and select “Page” from the menu. Then, right-click any page and select “Adjoin all pages into a single image.” Click “Select all” on the thumbnail pane and drag the pages to merge.

Add another PDF to a PDF

Adding another PDF to a PDF is a great way to combine multiple files into one. However, you have to make sure that both of the PDFs are in the same file type. If they are not, you may need to edit the original files first before you can merge them. If you want to merge more than one PDF, you can use PDFelement. First, open the PDF you want to merge in the File Explorer. To do this, double-click the folder. Then, select the PDFs by clicking on the thumbnail icons. If you want to move the files, click the “Move Up” or “Move Down” buttons.

Using the same procedure as above, you can easily add another PDF to an existing PDF. You can drag the thumbnails of the added files to any position. You can even delete unwanted pages. The added PDFs do not inherit the original location. However, you have to ensure that your PC has enough memory to install a new program. To avoid this problem, you can install a free PDF converter and use its merge feature.

Adobe Acrobat XI

If you need to merge several PDF files into one, you can use Adobe Acrobat XI to perform this task. The program provides many options for merging files. For example, you can reorder pages by dragging and dropping their thumbnails. Alternatively, you can rename the file. Just be sure to save the new file as a copy. In this way, you can keep a copy of your newly combined PDF.

To combine multiple PDF files into one, you must locate them in the File Explorer. Double-click on a folder to navigate to your PDF files. Select the PDFs, then click “Open.” Alternatively, you can hold down the Ctrl key while clicking the “Open” button to select multiple files. Next, click Add PDFs, then move them up or down. Then, click the “OK” button to apply the changes.

Wondershare PDFelement

If you have multiple PDF files, combining them in one document can be very easy. To do this, simply use the “Combine PDF” option on the PDFelement home page. Then, select the folder for the output and drag and drop the files into it. When the process is done, you will be taken to a download page where you can save the merged files. Once you’re done, you can then edit or compress the files.

Version 8 of Wondershare PDFelement promises to be more compact, cleaner, and more comprehensive in offering new features. This new version aims to fix the shortcomings of its predecessor and give users a better experience. As of this writing, the program has become widely available. The program has a minimalistic user interface that avoids large icons. It also supports batch conversion. Lastly, it can merge PDF files with different pages to create one larger document.
