PDF Stitching Option

Post by wohlhut » Fri Aug 10, 2018 9:03 pm

I am using PDF Tools V7 Build 326.1. I have large construction plans that come in PDF format and use PDF-Exchange Editor to markup area for volume calculations and perimeter for the linear foot of materials. Many times, the plans are roads that connect from one to another on multiple pages. I know there is an overlay tool, but what I'm really after is to be able to stitch together multiple pages on a single page that I could (potentially) have a large canvas. Most canvases I work with are for 24" x 36", but if I could stitch together multiple 24"x36" sheets and rotate them accordingly to match them up I could just scroll from one end of the job to the other without having to move to another page. Is this possible with a tool the PDF-Tools currently provides?

Hello wohlhut,
Thank you for your post. You can make use of the recently added Merge Pages function located under Organize> Merge Pages.

You will need to rotate individual sheets or pages before activating the Merge Page function, and subsequently adjust the settings as needed. It is functionally analogous to printing multiple pages per sheet, but without the need to print documents to achieve the desired effect.

I hope this helps!

Hello, wohlhut

In addition to what was said by Patick, PDF-Tools also provides "Merge Pages" tool, that works as "Merge Pages" option in PDF-XChange Editor, but could be applied as batch processing operation(for multiple documents).
You can find this tool in "Pages" category, or simply type tool name in the Search on the top of the tools list.
