How to Combine PDF Files on Mac
One of the most widely used file formats is the Portable Document Format (PDF). PDFs are text or photo documents that you may share with anyone who has access to a computer or smartphone. PDF files can be viewed and edited from any browser which is not possible in other file types such as Word files that require dedicated softwares like Microsoft Word.
PDFs are useful for exchanging files with friends or coworkers, especially if you don’t know what software they use. You may also rest assured that your document’s format will not change regardless of the device used to access it.
