split, merge and rearrange PDF files PDFsam enables you to split, merge and rearrange the content of PDF files. You can split documents by size, page or bookmarks, merge multiple PDF files into one, rotate documents and also switch pages between documents. In addition to the split and merge functions, the program includes a Visual Document Composer, which allows you to open multiple documents as thumbnail previews, pick the pages you want and then create a new PDF file from the selected pages. PDFsam also includes a Visual Reorder tool that makes it easy to rearrange the pages in a document by simply dragging the page previews into their new position. This is a Java application, use the run.bat file to start the program. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Functionality over beauty 4 stars by kathy025 Oct 20, 2013 (Read all my 17 reviews)
While it is agreeable that that interface is not the most user-friendly at first glance, it can be easily studied in two minutes. The Visual Document module allows for extracting selected pages, reordering them, and finally merging them into a new PDF via drag-n-drop. The user is also able to save the environment (e.g. selection, reordering) in an XML file, which can be modified later. PDFsam may not be the "prettiest" software most lay users look for, but it surely delivers what it promises to do. show Review details
Really nice 5 stars by gimpguy Sep 08, 2012 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
I had the opportunity to try this today and it's great. The interface is a bit (just a bit) tough, not horrible but you'll get how to work it in no time. After the fact, it combines, splits and works with pdfs wonderfully. It's fast, light and does the job. show Review details
Does its job but very clunky interface 3 stars by Harlan Sep 08, 2012 (Read all my 57 reviews)
Does what it is supposed to: splits, merges, and rearranges pages of PDF files. Interface is confusing and will be frustrating for occasional users; visual reordering is particularly labor-intensive with large files. It was designed to rely on plugins to extend its functionality, but it hasn't attracted any interest from other developers. There are several other free PDF split-and-merge utilities available, and this one, which has been largely unchanged for a long time, is showing its age. Since there are also several free PDF applications with a much broader range of functions, users should look elsewhere. show Review details
