Ultra PDF Merger or UltraPDFMerger is a freeware utility that binds several PDF files into one. It is a Windows application written in C# (.NET) and as a result of that it requires .NET Framework 4.0 to run. Ultra PDF Merger uses iTextSharp, an open source library for PDF generation. You can download and update the library (.dll) file with the latest version if you want.
Few months ago I had some reports (PDF files) that I wanted to bind them into one. I had a utility that until that time was merging my files successfully, I don’t want to name it here. Those reports seemed to have some characters that the utility could not read and it was failing. I have searched the internet and I have found several PDF binders, mergers and joiners but the ones I tried didn’t meet my needs, so I have decided to create one. The result of this story is the Ultra PDF Merger. It succeed when others have failed.
How to use
Ultra PDF Merger is a very simple utility, it does one thing and it does it very well. You add the files you want to merge together using the Add button which is a big plus (+) sign. You change the order of the files by selecting the file you want and moving it with the Move Up and Move Down buttons. If you want to remove some files, you select the file you don’t want and then press the Remove (big red X) button. Now that you have all the files in the correct order press the Merge Files button and program will join the files into one file. Ultra PDF Merger only joins PDF files that are not locked or password protected. If any of the selected files is locked or password protected it will fail
Screenshots are taken in Windows 7 environment and it will probably look a little different in your system (especially on Windows XP).
Ultra PDF Merger is portable which means you don’t have to install it. You download it, you extract it and you run it. The download file is an archive (.rar file) and you will need WinRAR or 7-Zip to extract the program files.
