    merging PDF's

    Is it possible to merge PDF's into a single file using Adobe Acrobat Reader? Or do I need to get some other (expensive?) software?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re:merging PDF's

    I didn't think reader could create files. I had acrobat pro a while ago.

    I assume acrobat pro is something you have to pay extra for?

    Re: merging PDF's

    I think with pdfcreator (freeware) you can drag both files in and combine them

    Re: merging PDF's

    If you have a Mac you can use Automator to do it. There are tutorials online just search for "automator pdf merge."

    I haven't done this for a while though, so hopefully it still works.

    Great tool...I've been using it for several years.

    pdfforge.org | The free PDF Creator and Converter

    Just be aware, pdfcreator setup does try to install a third party toolbar (which has varied over the year, AVG now I think), probably to raise revenue. Choose the custom/advanced setup option, and you can disable whatever toolbar it wants to install.

    Re: merging PDF's

    You can get a 30 day trial of acrobat from adobe. I don't know if this is a one time deal or not for you, but I used that for one of my projects one semester.

    I like pdfill at pdfill.com. Free pdf writer and image writer (tif, jpg, etc.) and various pdf tools like split and merge.

    Foxit Advanced PDF Editor - Overview

    A paid-for solution - but much, much cheaper than the full acrobat editor.

    Re: merging PDF's

    LaTeX will do it for free, but it would take some learning if you don't know how to use it

    Re: merging PDF's

    while we are on this topic I know acrobat allows the creating of pdfs that allow digital signatures. Are the other options anyone likes. I have used Acrobat before and like it, just seeing if there is something else that will not cost $200-$300.
