How to insert a PDF file into another PDF file using Acrobat X or XI

Lori KassubaDecember 13, 2011

It’s very easy to insert a PDF into another PDF using Adobe Acrobat X Std. or Pro. To do this, open one of the PDF files you want to combine, like the file I have open here. Then click on the Tools pane, Pages panel, and select the Insert from File command. This particular command allows you to select one or more PDFs to insert into your existing PDF document. This same dialog also allows you to insert other types of documents like Microsoft Word or Excel files. In this case I’m going to select both a Word file and a PDF file, at the same time, to insert into this open document. After you click the Select button, you can specify the location your file is inserted into the existing PDF. And then after you click OK in the Insert Pages dialog, your file will be converted to PDF, if it was in another format, and then combined into the existing document. To view, I'm going to open up the Page Thumbnails Navigation Pane and take a look at the new files that were added to the end of this particular document. Using the More Insert Options command in the Pages panel, it’s also possible to add content directly from your clipboard, scanner, a web page, or even a blank page.
