How to Combine PDF Files and Keep the Original Page Size

There are many reasons why you may want to merge PDF documents. That's why on this page we will look at how to combine PDF files and keep the original page size. PDF Combine is the perfect tool for this job.

First of all, the main advantage of combining PDF files is that it makes for easier organization. It's not uncommon to find yourself working with tens or dozens of PDF documents at a time. That would be fine, except the back and forth movement from one document to another can be tedious and confusing.

The solution? Use PDF Combine to merge them into one PDF file. That way you'll have just one document to refer to.

Similarly, if someone sends you a document with several pages to print out and sign, it would look weird to send the pages back individually. A more professional approach would be signing each page, scanning all them in PDF, combining them into one PDF file, and then sending that single file.

And if you're not faced with any one of those scenarios, perhaps you may find it necessary to add one or more pages to an already-made PDF file. Again, you'll have to combine the new pages with the original document. And PDF Combine will come in handy.

Step 2. Add the PDF files that you want to combine

There are three ways of doing that.

Add PDF Files

First, you can click on the "Add" button to open Explorer. Browse your PC to the folder where the documents are located and then click "Open" to add them to the interface.

Secondly, you can drag and drop all the files that you want to combine. This is an ideal option if the folder in which they are located is already open in your PC.

The final option is the "Add Folder" button. Use this method if you want to add a folder full of PDF files that need to be combined. Note that PDF Combine will only pick files that are in PDF format.

Step 3. Order the PDF files

Reorganize your PDF documents in the order that you want them to appear. I.e. the file that needs to appear first should be at the top and the one that needs to appear last should be at the bottom.

Sort and Order PDF Files

Use the up and down arrow keys to reorder the files. If you click the UP key, the file that's highlighted will move one step up. Conversely, the DOWN key will move the highlighted file one step down.

Step 4. Set output folder

One of the best features of PDF Combine is that it lets you decide where you want to save the processed PDF. You can do that by clicking on "Output Path" which is located at the bottom left. Go ahead and browse the folder in which you want the PDF to be saved.

Step 5. Combine PDF files

Click on the "Combine Now" button to start merging PDF files.
