How to Merge PDF Files
There are multiple instances when you might need the ability to safely merge PDF files – you may need to merge scanned documents into a single PDF, add a cover page to a presentation, or just copy an individual page from one PDF file into another. Many people turn to websites that offer editing and merging PDFs online. However, this is not a very secure option, as your documents could be stolen, infected with viruses, or corrupted to the point where they are not usable.
We recommend Movavi PDF Editor as a valid alternative to online PDF mergers. This simple and powerful utility lets you combine several PDF files into one or collect individual pages from different documents, all with guaranteed data security.
Check out these ways to merge your PDFs offline with Movavi PDF Editor.
How to Combine PDF Files Using the Merge Files Button
If you need to combine two or more PDFs into one large PDF, Movavi PDF Editor is at your service.
Step 1. Install Movavi PDF Editor
Download the PDF Editor, launch the installation file, and follow the instructions on the screen.
Step 2. Add the PDFs You Want to Join Together
Run the program and click the Merge Files button. In the window that opens, click Select Files and choose files you want to merge. You can also drag the files into the app’s working area.
Step 3. Join the PDF Files
You can rearrange the files you’ve added by dragging them into the desired order. To create a single PDF from these multiple documents, click Merge. The new document will open in another tab so you can do more editing if you wish.
Step 4. Make Edits and Submit Them
In the preview tab, you will see the merged file with all the pages from the files you added. The pages will appear in the order in which the documents were placed earlier. Any of these pages can be moved, copied, rotated, or deleted. If you need to add some extra blank space between your pages, use the Blank Page button in the right-hand panel. To save the new file, click File in the menu bar and choose Save As.
How to Merge PDF Files with Images Using the Manage Pages Mode
Sometimes it's useful to add a batch of images to your PDFs to make the document more understandable and easy-to-read. The tool will automatically convert PNG and JPG images to PDF.
Step 1. Get the Application
Download, install, and run Movavi PDF Editor on your computer.
Step 2. Open a PDF
Open a PDF file in the program and click the Manage Pages button in the top panel. You will see the layout of your document.
Step 3. Import Images into Your PDF Document
To add images as separate pages, click Append Files in the right-hand menu and choose the images you want to add. The added image(s) can be moved within the document by dragging and dropping them to the desired location(s). You can also import and place an image directly on a PDF page using the Image option from the Edit drop-down list.
Step 4. Create a New File
To save the content to a new file, choose the Save As command from the File menu, enter a name for the file, and hit Save.
How to Combine PDF Pages From Different Documents
If you want to collect pages from different PDF documents and merge them into a single PDF, we recommend you use tabbed editing.
Step 1. Download the Software
First, download and install the software on your PC or Mac.
Step 2. Prepare Files
Open each source document in a separate tab using the Open File button. Make sure that you have selected the page management mode in each tab.
Step 3. Combine Pages from Different PDF Files
Then, holding down the Ctrl key, select one or more pages in one document, copy them with Ctrl+C, open the tab containing the target document, and paste the pages with Ctrl+V (or choose Paste in the right-hand menu). You can then manually rearrange the order of the pages in the final document.
Step 4. Save Your Changes
To save changes to the current file, use the Save command from the menu bar. To save a copy of a PDF, use the Save As command.
