Cisdem PDFToolkit is an easy-to-use document manager that wraps multiple PDF tools in one package. Therefore, the program works as a PDF merger, splitter, and compressor, and an image and text extractor.

The utility comes with a clear-cut and highly-intuitive interface, structured into five well-defined modules. No matter the function you enable, you are first required to load the files you wish to process. Once they are added into the app, you are provided with detailed information about each file, such as the name, the size, and the number of pages of the imported PDFs. Each module has a very generous preview that allows you to browse through files at your convenience. Merging files is done easily with a click of a button – unfortunately, the tool joins only entire PDFs, as selecting page ranges to combine is not supported.

The split function has multiple options – namely, you can divide a large PDF by a defined number of pages per file, by the pages to keep, or by those to remove. The program offers multiple compression features so that you can select the compression mode that better fits your needs. Unlike other compression tools, Cisdem PDFToolkit doesn't archive the files – it simply preserves the original PDF format at a reduced size. Furthermore, the app lets you extract image and text content from selected PDFs. For fast processing, you can ask the program to limit the scanning operation to the current page or to a page range you specify.

To sum up, the program offers a complete solution to manage PDF documents. All functions are clearly-defined and easy to enable.
