    Older PDF Sam was great as a visual and fast tool to build 1 pdf from several by selection of the pages ; the free feature disapeared. Here PDF Arranger does exactly the same and is still as fast and free in 2021

    So far, PDF Arranger is the first completely free PDF document toolkit that allows me to merge various PDF documents and/or images and rearrange the pages in the resulting document. Just what I am looking for right now. Great. :)
