It’s easy to combine PDFs on your Chromebook.

For your personal needs or a project related to work, there’s a simple way to bring multiple files into a single document to be both better organized and work more efficiently in groups.

School or work projects that contain multiple materials can generate a lot of files — your own, and those of your team members. Even working solo can present challenges with so many PDFs, but merging them together can help make the process smoother. And, if you use Adobe Acrobat online services, it’s simply a snap.

Why combine multiple PDFs on Chromebook?

The main reasons to combine multiple PDFs are to make your workflow more efficient and to keep documents organized.

Concise workflow with merged PDFs on Chromebook.

Separate documents can slow down your workflow. When you combine PDFs, you can share a related group of documents all at once. Grouping documents will save your team from wasting time opening and searching through files or checking that they are in the right order. Merging PDFs also helps you ensure that no one overlooks important related documents.

Organize your Chromebook by merging multiple PDFs.

Use the Files app to keep documents organized on your Chromebook. You can create folders to organize PDFs, but even with folders, it can be hard to navigate through multiple documents in a series. Merge PDFs in logical groupings, perhaps for a related project or to archive older versions of a final piece. Merging documents and naming them appropriately can make it easier to find what you need in your files.

How to merge multiple PDFs into one file on a Chromebook.

Before you begin, make sure that the files you need are accessible from your Chromebook. Some might be stored on the device itself, and some might be in a cloud-based service or drive. The files you’d like to merge don’t all need to be in the same place in the beginning. After you’ve combined them using Adobe Acrobat online, they’ll all be brought together in one document.

Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Navigate to the Acrobat online Merge PDF page on Chrome or any preferred browser.
  2. Click on “Select files” or drag and drop files into the drop zone using the touchpad.
  3. If you need to pull files from an additional source, click the icon with the plus sign to allow further selections.
  4. Click the “Merge” button, and the files will combine.
  5. Download the combined file, and then you can also sign into Adobe Document Cloud for options to add, delete, or reorder files — and to share files with others.

Now that your related documents are in one cohesive and shareable PDF, it’s more convenient to access all the info needed for your project.
