How do you make several pieces into one?

I use TablEdit to compose and arrange pieces. When I make them into pdf files I can only print 1 at a time.
I want to put several of the pieces into 1 pdf so that I can print them as set. This would allow me to make them into 1 work with several pieces. How can I do that?

Sounds like the best bet is to either get a program that allows you to combine PDFs, or convert the PDFs to JPG or other format, then assemble a new PDF from the individual files.

I don't know if TablEdit can cut and paste, but you might be able to create a longer piece by cutting and pasting from individual pieces into a single, longer piece.

do you have Adobe Acrobat Pro?

if you do, go to File -> Create -> Combine Files in to Single PDF -> save

you can rearrange the files order too

Hi Kay,

there are many free tools for merging PDF files, one of them is the "PDF Merge Tool", which you can find here:

if you can drag the first piece of music on to an emty plain writing file, then insert a little space and drag the next under the first and so on. Then convert it into PDF. Or make a photo of the pieces and convert the photo to PDF.

that's how I do things sometimes.

greetings !!!
