Editors' Review

PDFMerge is the sort of tool we've come to expect from Free PDF Solutions; a streamlined application that essentially makes it as easy as possible to do one job. In the case of PDFMerge, it's merging multiple PDFs into single documents. PDFMerge is based on the PDFSharp library. In addition to being free, PDFMerge's advantages are its small size (572.27KB) and speed. The latest version of PDFMerge, v1.19, has a new user interface. It supports Windows 98 to 8; we ran it on Windows 7.

Optional downloads are as common with freeware as commercials with broadcast TV, and PDFMerge is no exception, though with an emphasis on "optional." We declined the extras and opened PDFMerge's dialog-style graphical user interface, which has four buttons: "Add PDF File," "Remove Selected," and "Remove All," for adding files to the program's main window, and a "Merge Now" button next to the field for choosing a destination folder. All were easy to use, although we were surprised that we couldn't drag and drop files into PDFMerge. Up and Down arrows let us reposition documents within our queue. We started simple with a pair of multipage PDFs. PDFMerge finished the job so quickly we were unaware anything had happened, yet our target folder held the merged PDF, which opened and displayed normally in our default PDF viewer. Much larger batches took longer, of course, but the speed was still impressive, overall. While PDFMerge doesn't offer a Help file or any extras, its Web page includes some instructions and a support link.

If you need more settings or complexity, other PDF tools are available; some of them free, too. But within its scope, PDFMerge is a viable alternative to expensive, complex, all-in-one PDF programs if you just need to merge documents with ease.

"Proficient in merging and splitting"

July 26, 2015  |  By Constance A

 |  Version: PDFMerge 1.0

Pros

there is no other tool which is as expertly designed as this free PDF merger. It can merge as well as split PDF files without any complications. I could easily merge multiple PDF files into a single file with the help of this free tool. It has no support files but I think it is self-sufficient by all means. The program is simple and compact in size which hardly affects the performance of the entire system. Files can be merged in batches too which is quite a remarkable feature as it helps to save ample amount of time. It also includes various customizable features. I could extract, re-order and even mix the documents with ease.

Cons

No cons...

"Avoid. Filled to the brim with Malware/Adware/Spyware"

July 17, 2015  |  By Forever Acta Non Verba

 |  Version: PDFMerge 1.0

Pros

None because this thing is worst than Ebola.

Cons

Tried to install and immediately was asked to install other software which I did not want or need. Worst when I canceled the install another piece of software called Weatherbug was installed onto my pc. Avoid this spyware/adware ridden mess.

Summary

Cnet you violated the trust I had in your site by allowing this garbage.

"Finally, a good, solid app to merge PDFs"

April 30, 2015  |  By Deborah E. Hall

 |  Version: PDFMerge 1.0

I can't say enough about how much I needed this software. I had tones of PDFs that I'd like to merge! This app is simple and solid. Does what it promises in a short amount of time. Efficiency is the name of the game with this app.

Cons

None that I could see.

"Installed lots of Malware that crashed my computer"

February 09, 2015  |  By wadelle2

 |  Version: PDFMerge 1.0

Pros

I installed in the past without problems, but NO MORE. WARNING: Please see Cons below!

Cons

I've installed PDFMerge on other machines over the year. I'm always careful to look for and uncheck options for installing other unwanted programs. This time, I unchecked the options to install some extra Yahoo stuff, but lo and behold as soon as I finish installing PDFMerge two programs (Bikiniland and Short Signal or similar) were installed which changed my browser homepage, search engine, and launched all kinds of annoying pops. I manually uninstalled the two new programs and went to reboot to complete the removal. Windows would not start no matter what I tried. Now I'm without a computer and will have to pay to have it fixed. DO NOT install this program!!!! Companies like this should be sued.

Summary

DO NOT INSTALL unless you want to risk malware and crashed computer!

Pros

Free PdfMerge is a tool that uses the PDFSharp library and is both command line or General user interface driven. So in simple terms it integrates various several PDF files together. It is a small sized accurate software.

Cons

No glitches or lags till now. Does what it advertises.
