How to Combine PDF Files in PDFelement
Make sure you’ve installed PDFelement on your PC. Select the files to be combined and continue reading.
Method 1: Combine to PDF with a Right-Click.
Now let’s combine all the files which you selected to combine to PDF with a right-click. See the screenshot, Easy, right?
The Combine Files windows will pop up automatically, as shown below.
Check that your files are imported to PDFelement.
Click Next and save the newly created PDF file. Done!
Tips: In this PDF combine process, you don’t need to launch the software first. Just choose your files on your desktop and finish the process. Alternatively, you also can launch PDFelement and combine different files into a single PDF.
Method 2: Combine Different Files into a Single PDF
Launch PDFelement first, and find the Combine PDF function module
Clicking that Combine Files button in the Page tab will open the same Combine Files window as in the previous method. Do the same thing to merge different files into one PDF document.
Method 3: Create a Catalog Page for Easy Navigation
In order to make your combined PDF file easy to read, the new version, V7.5.7, from PDFelement also offers this amazing function. Come to the Combine Files windows, find the “Generate new catalog page from bookmark” and check the box next to it, then click “Next”.
Your catalog is now live. A new table of contents will be generated on the first page and will contain the title of each original document that you uploaded.
Method 4: Insert Pages from Another PDF
Sometimes, you just need to insert pages into the current pdf.
For this, click the Page tab, then the Insert icon, and select From PDF. Select the source file, then choose the relevant pages in the Insert window and hit OK to insert the page into the primary PDF file.
