It may be a storyboard, a presentation, or simply your notes. It’s something you want to print but you also want it to be summarized in one page because you just don’t want to keep turning to another whenever you need to take a peek at a few details. Or maybe you just don’t want to spend too much on paper because it's not something you’ll just keep for yourself anyway. Whatever the reason is, PDF imposition is the answer to this requirement.

What is PDF imposition?

PDF imposition is the process of putting together pages side by side and creating a layout that projects different pages and documents in one sheet. When PDF imposition is applied, pages are decreased in size to fit it in one page. Imposition is actually already available using printing options and can easily be done by changing the print setting. However, a printer may not always be available and the pages you need may not always be from the same source file. So how do you solve this dilemma? Here’s a step-by-step guide.

How to combine different PDF files

If you have two different files that you want to put together in one paper, the first step is to combine them using a merge tool or a combine and reorder tool. Don’t worry, this tool can be used for free at and you can rearrange the pages while combining them so you won’t have a hard time putting the right pages side by side. To do this, follow these steps:

Step one: Go to and select the combine and reorder tool

Step two: Upload your PDF documents. The files will be combined digitally as soon as you upload them. A preview will also appear on-screen once the PDF is uploaded.

Step three: Drag and drop the thumbnails on-screen to arrange the pages according to your liking. Make sure to put together the pages that you need to be side by side. This won’t put them in one sheet but it will make it easier for you to put them side by side later on.

Step four: Click save and download your combined file.
