Merging PDF files online and keeping existing bookmarks
The problem: you have a few Chapters from a book or project documentation and you would like to merge them into a single PDF document. It’s easier to search and navigate. It’s easier to mail or link to online.
This tool handles existing bookmarks by default, as you would expect. It has some additional nice features that I like.
Table of contents for merged PDF documents
Sejda can generate a table of contents for the merged PDF files. The first pages in the resulting merged document have clickable links that point to the start of the merged files.
Adding the filename to each page in the footer when merging PDFs
It makes it easier to identify which page came from which file by adding the filename to the footer of the merged PDF pages.
Wrapping existing bookmarks in a top level parent bookmark, per merged PDF file
This works great when the merged files already have bookmarks. To better organise them Sejda can wrap all bookmarks in one file with a new top level bookmark based on the file name or title.
Chapter One + Bookmark 1 + Bookmark 2 Chapter Two + Bookmark 3 + Bookmark 4
Generate a bookmark for each merged PDF document
This works nicely when the merged PDF documents don’t have bookmarks themselves, but you’d like to easily navigate the merged PDF document. Usually used in tandem with the Table of Contents generation feature.
