How to Merge Several PDFs into a Single PDF File
You can only save single pages to PDF when you are in Ativa Lite.

However, after saving several one page PDFs, you can merge them into a single file using other options:

  • Use a free online tool that merges PDFs into one file such as PDF Merge.
  • Use a PDF program with a “Merge files” feature. Your existing PDF program may have this feature.
