Document merge issue

Post by marcin19545 » Fri Oct 19, 2018 11:12 am

I often use pdf Tools to merge multiple documents into one.
My input files are single-page and multipage PDFs

After last actualization (to version 7.0 build 327.0) i noticed that Combine tool has started sorting pages in weird manner

Althought i arrange files in order, output file has mixed pages. Not only pages from different documents has wrong order, but multipaged PDFs are splited to single pages wchich are inserted at random positions into document.

for example:
input piles
F1: page 1 (one page)
F2: page1, page 2.....page 10 (ten pages)
F3: page 1 (one page)
F4: page1, page2, page3 (three pages)

output file:
F1p1,F2p1,F4p1,F3p1, F2p3.... (mixed pages coming from single files but also multipaged files are splitted into single pages and all of it is random mixed)

and it should be
F1p1, F2p1, F2p2, ..., F4p3 (all pages should be ordered in selected file order and its inner pages order should remain unchanged)

My input file list: (notice that marked file has tvelwe pages - every page has much of blue color)

Document Layout dialog (notice that "blue" pages are inserted on random positions)

Hi,
it is the issue with option Every N pages from different document. It applies even the option is disabled :(
As workaround try to enter big number of pages in editbox. For example 10000
