I have some technical doco that has been written as several pdfs (i.e. one chapter per pdf). Does anyone know if it is possible to join them all together into one document? (i have Distiller and Acrobat Writer 5, etc).

Hi Sluggy,

I'm not sure how to do it but there are alot of utilities that can do it. Adlib makes one for sure though there are probably less expensive ones. Check out Planet PDF you might find something useful.

Thanks Donkey, exactly what i needed. I would have thought that Adobe would have built that sort of functionality into Acrobat though <shrug>

It is built in to Acrobat but you need the registered version. Simply open one pdf, then drag the other pdf onto the open one. (I think anyways)

I used iSEDQuickPDF for that on a commercial project. Cheap license and most powerfull PDF DLL I saw yet.

James,
thanks for that, it worked (you learn something everyday....)



bazik,
you should go to PlanetPDF and check out the price of some of the licenses there, they are huge.

You say in your first post you have Acrobat *Writer* (not Reader). If so, all you have to do is open the first PDF, then from the Document menu choose "Insert Pages ...", navigate to where all the other PDF files are, shift click to select them all, click the select button, edit the bookmarks if needed, then save the file as a single PDF.
