PDF Combining Tool is a combining tool for combining multiple PDF files to one PDF. You can get three different version programs of it for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. The commands, options and arguments of the program for the three systems are the same.

If a PDF document is completed by many different people separately, you may have to combine these PDF files to one PDF at last. And PDF Combining Tool is what you need.

The following paragraphs are about the usage of PDF Combining Tool in combining PDF files in Mac OS X.

A basic usage of the program is

pdftoolbox <input files> [options] <-outfile output>

You can specify one or more PDF files within input files, and specify the output file name within output. The options are for using options in specific operations. Note that the filed input files supports using labels to indicate the input files, and you will learn it in the following example.
