You’re probably in the following situation:
If that’s the case, we’ve got you covered.
The great news is that by the end of this article, you’ll leave with a combined PDF file, on your Mac.
We’ll be covering a few methods.
Why? Different people prefer different methods.
Plus, we’ll teach you some online and some offline ways.
Let’s dive into it.
This is the shortest way.

And voila! Your new file is now created.
You’ll actually be thrown straight into renaming the combined file, thanks to the Mac operating system.
However, what happens if you want to combine files… page by page?

Alternatively, you can just do File → Save to save the new, combined file on that PDF file.
And voila! You’re done! PDF files combined, on a Mac, with granular control over what page sits where.
