PDF files are now a de facto standard and are often exchanged online via email or certified e-mail and, just as often, document scans are also carried out therectly in this format.

PDF stands for Portable Document Format (portable document format in our language); already from the name it is possible to deduce the reason for its success. Portability means the ability to open the file identically (without formatting problems and missing characters) on any platform on which a suitable client is available. Unfortunately, despite this great advantage, it's not so easy to ethet PDF files.



Today we will cover all the solutions to merge several PDF files together into one file.

Merge PDFs via online services

There are several convenient solutions on the net that allow you to merge PDF files or remove pages from them. These tools have limitations: become inconvenient as the file size increases or the number of files increases. If you find yourself in one of these cases we advise you to move on to the next paragraph dethecated to local programs to merge PDFs. Without further delay, here are the best solutions to merge PDFs online:
