scMergePDF - A C# PDF Merge Example

scConverter PDF Merge C# Sample Application

This application is very easy to use; you open different PDF files one by one using the Open PDF File for Import button. After the file is opened a thumbnail of each page in the file will be listed in the left page list. You may then either add all pages using the Add all Pages button or select one or more of the pages in the left page list and then add these using the Add Selected Page(s) button. When all desired files and pages have been added, you may create the new merged PDF file using the Create New PDF button.
