Steps to Merge PDF Files with PDF Bear

  1. Upload PDF files to PDFBear

Once you are on the site and the merge pdf tool, the next thing to do is to upload the PDF files you intend to merge. To start uploading files, click the Select Files button located at the center of the toolbox. A window of your device’s file library will appear. There you will have to select the files that need to be merged and then click Open.

Another easy and convenient option to upload the files is to simply select them in your file library, drag them, and then drop them to the assigned area in the server. The server will automatically load and process your file right after. It usually takes a few seconds to a minute depending on the size of the files uploaded and the speed of your internet connection. 

2. Choose from Merge Options

When your file is uploaded, PDF Bear will ask you to choose how you want to merge your files. The first option is Merge Files where the site allows you to arrange and combine entire PDFs any way you like. This option is free. The second option is only for those who have access to PDFBear’s pro features. It is the Merge Pages, where you can select, arrange, and combine individual pages of PDFs. Once you have selected your desired merge option, click the Choose Options button. You will be directed to the next step.

3. Modify your PDF files if necessary

In this next step, you can modify how you want your file to be merged depending on the Merge Option you chose in the previous steps. You will see a preview of your PDF files at the center and if you wish to add and remove them, you can do so.

To add more PDF files for merging, click the Add More button. And if you want to remove a document, simply click the Trash Bin button which you can find above each PDF file. You can also have a closer look at the PDF file by clicking the Zoom In button right above the file. And even know more about the details of the file by clicking the question mark button.
