How to combine multiple files into one PDF file using Acrobat X

Donna BakerMarch 23, 2012

You can either start from the task button or the Welcome Window. Click the Create task button, and choose Combine Files into PDF. From the Welcome Window, just click Combine Files into PDF.

The Combine Files dialog box opens. Notice that the Single PDF button is selected automatically. Click Add Files > Add Files. Locate and select the file you want to include. The first file shows on the list.
Click Add Files again to open the menu. This time, we’ll add several files at once, so click Add Folders. The Browse For Folder dialog box opens. Select the folder’s location, select your folder, and click OK. All the files in the folder—three in this case—are added to the list.

You don't need to use all the pages in a file. Click a file’s name to activate it and then click the Choose Pages button. You see the Preview and Select Page Range dialog box. Use the arrows at the bottom of the preview area to preview the document’s pages. Click Pages to activate the field and then type the page numbers you want to convert. Click OK to close the dialog box. You see the selected Page Range shows on the list.

If you want to change the order of the files, click a file’s name and then click the Move Up (or Move Down) button. When your list is ready click Combine Files. Wait a few seconds for Acrobat to process each file that isn’t in PDF format. Wait another few seconds for Acrobat to publish the new PDF document.

The Save As dialog box opens. Notice that Acrobat names the new file Binder1.pdf by default. Click Save to save the file and open it in Acrobat X.

Check out your new file: Click the Page Thumbnails tab, scroll through the thumbnails, and click a thumbnail to view the page. Four files into one PDF file in just a few seconds!

Hi Sochansolarz,

Have you tried running the Repair Acrobat Installation from under the Help menu? Also, have you updated Acrobat XI to the very latest point update?

Thanks,
Lori

Hi Mallery,

Let me know if you continue to experience problems with the video. It played fine for me. Keep in mind there is no audio (other than music) with this video.

Thanks,

Patty
