2 Online Editors You Can Use To Merge PDF Files / by Logan Lenz

There are many situations in your line of work where you will find that you need to merge PDF files.

If, for instance, you work in a marketing department or an advertising firm, there are certain projects that will have more than one person working on them.

A newsletter or company brochure is one such project. Different designers will work on different images. Article content will also be written by different contributors. You will then have to merge everyone’s work into one to come up with the final piece of work.

You can merge your PDF files using an online PDF editor.  Below are 2 useful online editors that will merge your files in a few simple steps:

Combine files using Docs.Zone

Docs.Zone  is an innovative and simple to use online PDF merging tool. When you open Docs.Zone, you will see six tabs that allow you to perform different editing tasks on PDFs.

One useful tool within Docs.Zone is the help area that is located just below the file upload area. You can click on the help area to learn more about the conversion processes. The help material changes, based on the task you click on.

Docs.Zone has an inbox section. This is the area where your files are stored after every conversion. 

To merge files using Docs.Zone, you can do the following:

1.       Choose the tab that reads ‘Combine files to PDF’.

2.       Select the files that you would like to combine.

3.       A dialog box will open. Add more files to the dialog box.

4.       In the region marked ‘Enter file name’, provide the name of the output file.

5.       Click start and your files will be combined.

6.       Download your file in the inbox area.
