How to create a multi-page PDF? That’s a question many business users ask, so we decided to show the process in a couple of different ways. As for the purpose of doing this task, a lot of businesses regularly need to merge multiple documents to create multi-page PDFs to send to their vendors (specs, requirements, etc.), their clients (portfolios and so on), and even for internal use (training, etc.). This article shows you the step-by-step process of how to create a multi-page PDF in two different ways. With these methods, you can easily learn how to make a multi-page PDF without Acrobat and the high cost it entails. For this exercise, we’ll use an affordable Adobe Acrobat DC alternative called Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor, which is quickly becoming the de-facto PDF editor of choice for small and large companies that don’t really want to spend tens of thousands of dollars deploying Acrobat DC or Acrobat Pro DC across their organization.
Here are the two methods to create multi-page PDFs from two or more source PDF files.
This method involves adding new PDF files to an existing one using PDFelement’s "Insert from PDF" function. The idea is to have your master file open and then use the Insert function within the Page tab to add new content. The details are shown below:
Launch the program and click the "Open files" option to import the master PDF file to which you want to add additional PDF files. You can also import the file into the program using a drag and drop action.
Next, go to the "Page" tab on the main menu at the top, then click the "Insert" option in the ribbon toolbar below it and select the option that says "From PDF". This will cause a new Insert window to pop up, where you’ll see several options.
The first step here is to browse and select your PDF file. Once that’s done, choose where you want the new pages to be added using the options in the "Place At" section. Click "OK" when you’re ready and the selected pages from the source file will be inserted at the specified place in the open master PDF.
You can repeat this process with multiple source files to compile your master PDF. Finally, save the master PDF with a new name and exit the application. There’s also another way to create a multi-page PDF, and this is by combining several PDFs or several different file types and merge them into a single, multi-page PDF file.
This method uses the "Combine PDF" and "Combine Files" functions in PDFelement. The first one can be found on the home page when you load the application; the second is on the "Tool" tab. The step-by-step process for both is shown below:
To merge other file types and create a single, multi-page PDF, click the "Combine Files" option in the "Tool" tab.
A "Combine Files" window will appear on your screen. You can click "Add file" to import files of different formats, as shown in the screenshot below.
Once you add your source files, choose your output folder at the bottom of the window and hit the "Apply" button to merge the files. The output file will be a PDF, and you will see that all the original content has been preserved as in the original source files. This is especially important when you have various content types like text, images, tables, graphs, charts, and so on.
Apart from allowing you to make multi-page PDF files from different source files or different PDF files, PDFelement offers an extensive palette of PDF tools you can use to make your document management task more efficient.
