Binding PDF Documents
A lot of information is available online in PDF format. I have downloaded several research and training documents in the past. Recently, I purchased a couple of online car repair manuals in PDF format. The cost is much lower when compared to a regular hard copy manual. And often they contain greater detail than the hardcopy.
However, when I downloaded the manuals, they contained 15 separate PDF documents each.
One of the selling points is the fact that you can search for any keyword and instantly access that information. Unlike trying to locate the information you need using an index at the end of a hardcopy manual, this is much faster and a search can be more detailed. This is perhaps one of the biggest reasons I wanted the downloaded format. While great in theory, the problem is that you can only search the PDF document you have open.
PDF Binder To The Rescue
A perfect solution is PDF Binder. This is a small free utility that has only one function– combine multiple PDF documents into one document. It is very easy to use and fast.
Once you click Bind!, you have to name the new file and that is all there is to it. It produced a single 1,685-page document. Now, when I perform a search, it searches all 1,685 pages.
After you load the documents and decide you don’t want a particular item, you have the option of removing a document from the list.
Note: Be sure to add the documents in the order you want them to appear in the finished document.
The only thing I like better than free programs are free programs that work exactly as you would want them to. No pop-up ads, no bloatware, and safe to use. PDF Binder does all of that. There are several programs that you can purchase that will combine PDFs and some like Adobe Acrobat will do much, much more. However, if combining multiple PDFs is all you want to do, give it a try.
