Easily combine multiple PDF files into a single document on a PC or Mac

  • You can combine several PDF files with some simple software in one paper.
  • The Preview software allows Mac users to merge their PDF files.
  • One of several free software programs to be downloaded by PC users.

One of the most popular file types is the Portable Document Format (PDF).

PDFs are mainly text or picture documents available to anyone with a device or smartphone that can be shared. Unlike a Word file that Microsoft Word needs for viewing or editing, most browsers open a PDF.

It is useful to share files with friends or colleagues, especially if you don’t know which software they have; PDFs are the one-size-fits choice. You can also be sure that the format of your document will not change regardless of the computer that accesses your file.

But let’s just presume you have a folder or more to post. You can merge and arrange multiple PDFs into a single file instead of submitting multiple attachments into an e-mail.
Mac users can do this using your computer’s Preview program.

PC users will be required to download applications, but many of these are free and user-friendly.

Combining PDF files on a Mac

Mac computers come with easy and intuitive PDF-combining programme called Preview. If the Preview isn’t in your dock, open and check for a new Finder window.

A quick tip: Any changes made to a PDF are immediately saved in the Preview. If you want to retain all original separate records, make sure your files are duplicated until they are combined. Click “File” on your PDF, then click “Duplicate” in the menu below.

  1. Open Preview.
  2. Open one of the PDFs you want to combine. We’ll be combining two in this tutorial.
  3. In your PDF file, click “View.”How to combine multiple PDF files into a single document on a Mac or PC
