PDFsam Basic or PDF Split and Merge is a free and open-source cross-platform desktop application to split, merge, extract pages, rotate and mix PDF documents.

The distribution system[edit]

PDFsam Basic is a desktop application freely accessible from the project's page both as source and compiled code. It is available as MSI package for 32-bit and 64-bit MS Windows, .dmg for Mac OS X, .deb package for Debian based GNU/Linux distributions and ZIP bundle for the power users' convenience.

Functionalities[edit]

  • Merge PDF files selecting entire documents or subsections of them. It provides a number of settings to let the user decide what to do in case the original PDF files contain Acro Forms or an outline (bookmarks) and it can generate a table of contents, normalize pages size and add blank pages.
  • Split PDF files in a number of ways:
    • After every page, even pages or odd pages
    • After a given set of page numbers
    • Every n pages
    • By bookmark level
    • By size, where the generated files will roughly have the specified size
  • Rotate PDF files where multiple files can be rotated, either every page or a selected set of pages
  • Extract pages from multiple PDF files
  • Mix PDF files where a number of PDF files are merged, taking pages alternately from them
  • Save and restore of the workspace

Architecture[edit]

PDFsam Basic relies on Sejda SDK, an open source and task oriented Java library to edit PDF files and SAMBox, a PDFBox fork.

Requirements[edit]

PDFsam Basic is written in Java and JavaFX and requires a working Java Virtual Machine version 8 or above installed in the operating system in order to run.
