Use PDFStitch to stitch more PDF pages into a single PDF page, stitch multiple PDF files together, stitch several PDF pages into one big canvas-like PDF

Using Windows 7 and pdfstich v2.1 dated 20130322 (is that the latest version?)

Using the command-line version, I run something like:

pdfstitch.exe -rt 0 -order H -scale 100 infile.pdf outfile.pdf

It comes back immediately with this error message:

Error input file format. Please try again.

But the input file is legitimate; I can view it in any old pdf viewer.


Hi folks
Time to time I have to merge PDF pages (pages 2-3 to one double sized page etc.). I have always done that by printing multiple pages per sheet... in my case 2 pages per sheet, but instead of printing, I have saved my work as PDF.
Now I have upgraded to MacOS X 10.6 and that doesn't work any more. If I try, I get warning "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported, use File>Save instead".
My problem is that there is no option "Save multiple pages per sheet"... so there′s no use to save it.... Is there some workarounds? I really need this feature and I can′t believe it has been taken away....



Thanks for your message, you can use VeryPDF PDF Stitcher to stitch more PDF pages into one single PDF page, you may download and install VeryPDF PDF Stitcher from this web page,

I have tried following command line just now, it works fine,

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VeryPDF PDF Stitch v2.1\pdfstitch.exe" -rt 0 -order H -scale 100 D:\downloads\VeryPDF.pdf D:\downloads\_out.pdf

you may use full path for both input and output filenames to try again, we hope the full path will work fine to you.

Please look at following screenshot for the stitched PDF file,


Here is the full command line options which supported by PDF Stitcher Command Line application,
