Review

This application is a handy tool to merge and split PDF documents. With a clean and intuitive interface, the program can be easily managed by anyone, regardless of the user's experience with this type of tools.

Loading files is done easily, either by dragging and dropping or by using the classical method of browsing files from within the application. Once the documents are imported, you get additional information about the date of creation, the number of pages, and the size of each PDF file. You have the ability to inspect the content of each file with ease, thanks to the convenient thumbnail-like view of your document's pages and a generous preview of the selected page.

Before enabling the merging and the splitting tasks, you need to open the "Preferences" dialogue, accessible from the drop-down menu, and adjust some settings, so that the output files meet your needs. Therefore, the merge function will allow you to combine multiple PDFs into one large document preserving the item order you already determined within the input list. Optionally, the resulting file can be saved with a prefix of your choice – this will help you distinguish the output file from its sources more easily. In addition, you can ask the program to delete the original files after completing the merging operation so that your disk won't be cluttered with useless files. The splitting task also supports customization. Therefore, you can split files by size or you can extract specific pages from a large PDF document simply by determining the page range. Both split modes support renaming the resulting PDFs by appending suffixes to them. Similarly to the merging operation, the original files can be deleted automatically once the splitting process is over. There are two other options related to splitting and merging PDFs, but they become active at a surcharge.

In conclusion, PDF Merge & Split Pro is a good alternative for binding and, respectively, splitting PDF files. With a clear approach and simple procedures, the new documents will be created in no time.
