I'm searching for a Method to combine two (or more) PDFs to a new one. This i have to do with the comman-line in windows. I haven't found a simple programm that can do this.

Has anyone an idea for a programm that can do this?

Best Regards

I would install Ghostscript under Cygwin, then do something like the following (I always have to try the commands a couple of times to get them right):

gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -sOutputFile=out.pdf file1.pdf file2.pdf [...]
  • You've still a small error here and didn't get it right: it must be -sDEVICE=pdfwrite. Also, I would add -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress for maximal quality. – Kurt Pfeifle Nov 2 '10 at 18:43
  • ghostscript is also available in native windows binaries, you don't have to use cygwin (see here). – matt wilkie Nov 16 '11 at 22:43
