merge mored PDF files on one page

Post by cfessler » Thu Jul 11, 2019 9:21 pm

Hi all,

i would like to know if there is a way to merge (or join) two or more PDF files (having one page) together to become one large page.

Hello Cfessler,

We do offer a merge pages feature, which can be found on the Organize tab:

(or by right clicking a page in the thumbnails pane)

You will have some control over the position of the pages by using the options within this dialog, but not quite fine enough control to achieve a layout like your diagram shows.

Kind regards,

Hi cfessler,

Unfortunately we can't change this. The ISO Specification is quite specific on page sizes (shapes, if you will). You can certainly manually arrange the content on each page to look like that, 'inside' a single, larger page.

Cheers,

Thank you.

Yes - but i was looking for a way to preserve the layers of the original PDF-Files - and I see no way to do so by manually arranging the pages. Isnt it?

Hi cfessler,

I think you are correct, you would in this case need to recreate the layers and manually apply the content to the appropriate layers.
