The program comes wrapped in a standard GUI, with well-delimited page sections, very intuitive and easy to navigate. There are very few customization options and no extra theme choices.

As you start using the app, you discover that there's a consistent list of embedded functions. Users are able to merge files, either completely or partially, manage bookmarks of merged files, or add table contents for generated PDFs.

With Split function, you can separate PDFs after every page, or add other filters like page numbers or size. As per the Rotate feature, this can be used to rotate PDF files to 90, 180, or 270 degrees.

Last but not least, if needed, users can extract pages from PDF files, either single pages or a specific page range.

In conclusion, PDFsam Basic is a reliable PDF tool, free and embedded with various tools.
