Editors' Review

Unlike with text documents, combining multiple PDF files is more than a matter of just copying and pasting. Fortunately, you don't have to drop a big chunk of change on Adobe Acrobat to be able to merge or split PDF files. Arduo PDF Merger is a simple program that can handle basic splitting and merging tasks. It's not the most sophisticated program we've ever seen, but it works fine for what it is.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, with commonsense buttons for adding and removing files. To merge PDF files, users simply select the documents--and you must browse to them within the program, there's no dragging and dropping--arrange them in the desired order, and process them. Users can also split each PDF into individual pages and arrange the pages as desired. The split pages can then either be merged into a new document or exported to a folder to be used individually. That's pretty much the extent of what Arduo PDF Merger does; it's not heavy on features, and is by no means a comprehensive PDF editor. The program loses points for not having a Help file; although it's pretty easy to figure out, we always like to see some documentation. Overall, Arduo PDF Merger is a good choice for users who need an easy way to merge and split PDF files, but be aware that it's a pretty no-frills program.

Arduo PDF Merger installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Difficult to work with, didn't do what I needed"

    June 15, 2011   |   By sdsman

    Version: Arduo PDF Merger 1.0

    Pros

    Installation was simple

    Cons

    Instructions were scarce and confusing. I had an 87 page PDF that I needed to pull 13 pages out of to distribute. I had a limited time and was unable to get any usable results.

    Summary

    This may be a perfectly fine program, but was not simple to use and I was not able to create the splits where I needed. The interface was not "plain and intuitive". I was not able to "Users can also split each PDF into individual pages and arrange the pages as desired.". I had a specific need and this program did not meet it. I also tried several other programs before I found one that was able to do what I needed.

    "OK for free, but not great."

    June 08, 2010   |   By ryanreaves

    Version: Arduo PDF Merger 1.0

    Pros

    Decent looking interface. Free.

    Cons

    Can't drag and drop files, have to use file system, which is inconvenient for the way I use the program. Could not figure out how to split/merge particular pages or range of pages out of a file.

    Summary

    Probably a good fit for some users. There are better programs out there.

    "Product won't launch. Crashes constantly."

    March 04, 2010   |   By jeffkoertzen

    Version: Arduo PDF Merger 1.0

    Pros

    Wouldn't know. Have never been able to launch it to find out.

    Summary

    Don't bother. Too many other tools out there that do the same thing and are much more stable.
