Split PDF File & Merge PDF Files – PDF Split and Merge

You must be aware of the importance of PDF files in business world. PDF files are highly popular among Internet users. The usages of PDF files include writing eBooks, reports, documents, user guides, marketing brochures and graphs. PDF files are saved in portable document format, which is highly popular for sharing files and documents from one place to another. The vast benefits of PDF files make them the first choice for computer users, be they students or office administrators.

  • PDF files are easy to create and easy to share over the network;
  • PDF files can easily contain text, images, document formatting, file properties and many other file objects;
  • PDF files are compressed in size as compared to other documents, so you can easily save a lot of space on your hard disk;
  • PDF files are supported by all popular operating systems of Windows and Mac systems, as well as mobile operating systems like iOS and Android;
  • PDF files are secured if you apply password protection and other security parameters on them.

These are the most eye-catching features of PDF files; however situations may arise when managing PDF files become challenging for users. Such manageability issues mostly occur with large-sized PDF files or if you’re having multiple small PDF files. Though such situations look very casual, but can cause great inconvenience for PDF users.

PDF Split and Merge

The only options PDF users left with are splitting PDF files if it’s large in size and merging PDF files into one if they’re large in numbers. Luckily Adobe Acrobat provides built-in functions which help users split PDF file as well as merge PDF files. But you can only use these functions if you’re having the licensed version of Adobe Acrobat Pro, not the free version. For those users who don’t have Adobe Acrobat Pro version, I strongly recommend them to use professional PDF Split and Merge software programmed for splitting PDF files as well as combining PDF files. But first let’s talk about the manual procedures via Adobe Acrobat Pro.
