Joining PDF files natively is not possible in the main readers of the extension. Because it was designed to be compatible with different systems, the format creates closed documents with few or no editing options.

Although there is more flexibility these days, merging two or more PDFs into one is allowed through a few tricks. To help you, brings together six sites that combine PDF online and for free.

1. I Love PDF


One of the most popular format conversion sites, I Love PDF lets you merge and merge files and put them in the order you prefer. You can use documents present on your computer or mobile phone or in Google Drive or Dropbox accounts.

After adding the first one, just go to the icon of +, in the right corner of the screen, to include the following ones (which can be from different sources, inclusive). To change the order, just drag thumbnails and position them however you like. Or click on the symbol AZ ou ZA to sort them in alphabetical order.

End the process on the button merge PDF and then in Download the combined PDF. It is also saving to Drive or Dropbox or generating a link or QR code for third parties to download.

What is PDF?

PDF is a file format called Portable Document Format. It was launched in 1992 by Adobe with the differential of sharing content securely.


Initially, documents saved in this format could not be changed. Currently, they are editable, but only those that are not password protected. Among the changes allowed are highlighting parts of the text, creating notes, including content, among other options.

Another advantage is the ability to open documents on any operating system, without configuring the content. Saved images also do not lose quality or change.

According to Adobe, PDF documents support links, buttons, form fields, audio, video, and digital signatures.

Among the most popular readers of the format are Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, PDFelement, Foxit Reader and SlimPDF Reader.
