How to Create a Multiple Page PDF

Many times the need arises to create multiple PDF documents from various sources and file types. This feature allows a PDF creation from a number of files within a directory. Once the pages are created, further editing can be done such as adding header and footer sections and including page numbering. Combined pages can be rearranged as desired. The resulting file is created and named as “Binder1.pdf” and can be renamed accordingly.
