How to Use a PDF Compiler

by PDFBear

We are back again with a valuable tutorial for you guys. In this article, we’ll show how you can use a PDF compiler. Similarly, we’ll also cover what’s a PDF compiler, why use it, some of its features, and everything in between. So, without further ado, let’s jump in.

What’s a PDF Compiler

Suppose, you have tons of PDF files that you want to amend together in your desired order. What will you do? A PDF compiler will help you execute the deed. A PDF compiler allows one to merge the PDF files altogether or in any desired order.

A PDF compiler quickly combines two or more PDF files together. Similarly, it offers two options, merging the files separately or page-by-page. However, the second option is paid in the majority of software.

To use a PDF compiler, you just need to drag and drop files. And then, it’ll compile them in a matter of seconds.

Why Use a PDF Compiler

There are countless reasons to use a PDF compiler. So, allow us to present some of the scenarios so you can get a rough idea.

For instance, you have tens of PDFs related to a specific subject of your interest. As they are currently stored as separate files, you face trouble and inconvenience accessing them all together at once. You can use a PDF merger to combine them in one easy-to-access PDF file as per your desired order.

Imagine, you have a set of PDF files that you have to showcase in the upcoming presentation. On the presenting day, it would be pretty awkward to close, open and re-open multiple PDFs when all eyes are on you. So, simply by compiling all the PDF files, you can save yourself from the unprofessional act.

We can go on and on with the scenarios, but hey, you got the gist of it, right? A PDF compiler makes your life easy when you have to merge multiple PDF files into one - regardless of the reason.

  7. Select an option and click on the blue CHOOSE OPTION button.

  8. Wait for PDFBear to load the previews of your PDF files’ pages.

  11. Then, drop the page.

  12. You’ll see that the page has now been moved to your desired position.

  13. Now, let’s switch to File mode.

  14. Here, you can only arrange and combine entire PDFs. As we have uploaded three PDFs, we see three sets of files.
    You can manually upload more PDF files - users who are using the free version will have to use this method to upload more than one PDF.

  15. To upload a PDF file, click on the three-dot round button located on the menu tray.

  16. A menu will appear; click File.

  17. Then, click Open…
