Here are some simple instructions on how to combine multiple PDFs into a single PDF using Adobe Acrobat DC.

Please note, it’s quick and easy to combine multiple PDFs (and images) into a single proof in PageProof by following these instructions. When reviewers download the original proof file, they will download a zip file containing the PDFs used to combine together to make the proof.

However, if you want to combine several PDF files into a single PDF first so that your reviewers download a single pdf file, you can use Adobe Acrobat, then use that file to create a proof.

To combine multiple PDFs into a single PDF using Acrobat

Step 1

Open Acrobat Pro DC and click Tools (found on the upper left corner of the app).

Step 2
