I am searching for alternatives to an easy application for compose pdf files , able to merge, split, combine easily in the way you see in this video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8I4eKvQzikI   

I began this post here :
http://www.donationcoder....m/index.php?topic=36144.0

But I haven't found a confortable application for this purpose.

What I would like is a drag and drop alternatives applications able to extract in interactivity, compose , insert, extract, merge, split pdf files. Just in the way you see in the you tube video. Best Regards

This one Ultra PDF Merger v1.3.5 don't have the interactibility required because is a simple linear window where you can insert pdf, while the ideal is a multiple address window where any pdf is initially split in pages and then you are able with the drag and drop system to group, ungroup pages, move pages from one pdf to another, etc.

This one PDF Split Merge Extract don't offer a friendship environment and you have to elucubrate the way you want the final pdf, not in an interactive and simple drag and drop system. Not with enough flexibility.

Adobe Acrobat utility PDF Binder is not enough flexible and quick
Offer additionally the possibility to merge from doc and xls, but not deeply inside just because uses a plane matrix o linear matrix. You can change the order the files are inserted, but not select a part of each one component like in the you tube video of the first post.

Another example of a complicated program with no what you see is what you get way :
Advanced PDF Combiner 1.8

Offer a complicated window with multiple options you decide and limit to two pdf.

I know and use, but is linear interactive. You can merge , you can split. If not so easy. I am trying now with other trials merely don't give note.
I put that program in the first post in the other post related to this one.
Thanks a lot tomos
Best Regards

By example : Okdo All to PDF Converter Professional
fails me with one of my excel files trying. And is only an aproximation to the target.
They have free the merge/split tool

Some programs are simple a headache or even a fake when paid. A fellow told us of the buggy question and seems habitual in this type of software. It's a mere opinion after trying a lot and no need to give names....

moar details! tongue
What do you mean by linear?
I find it works very quickly, but you need to know what pages of the document you want. No preview. Otherwise very good and effective.
Also, you can change the sort order of documents.

No need to use that one since pdftk* now has official GUI - http://www.pdflabs.com/to...ls/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/

* the tool you linked to is GUI for old pdftk command-line tool

^thanks for that tip Attronarch Thmbsup

There is now a pro version ($3.99 thumbs up) - it looks like you need the pro version if you want to select just part if the PDF's.
Strangely, they partially hide what the pro version does (see below) - and dont seem to do any straight-forward comparision on the site, but Pro obviously includes Rotate/Watermark/Secure (and I *think* selecting pages from PDF).

What I had was an old version and free version of the GUI version.
I have installed the free version and you can extract pages with the free version.

In my old version you only can join or split, but not extract
In the new the novelty is that you can extract

Unfortunately is not so powerful like gDoc. but It's very useful indeed.
I have trying this afternoon the powerful libreoffice

There is a lot of solutions but I haven't find the one similar to gDoc

I recently was working with a lot of contracts and stuff that were being revised constantly, with multiple sets of documents that needed to be merged and inserted, etc. all the time.  I used this program:
http://www.debenu.com/

It basically allows you to create methods of batch processing a bunch of pdf operations.  For example:
--open document 1
--insert pages 3-5 of document 2 after page 40 of document 1
--merge this new document with document 3

etc

very handy, very speedy.  saved me a lot of headaches.  a little quirky and buggy at times (sometimes it would just crash).  but overall i was very excited about it.

To be honest I immediately bought pro version since I've been using the tool for long time. It has several quirks that should be addressed soon. The author is receptive to feedback, and I believe that the GUI will be even better when he updates it. Anyway, I don't think that you need pro version to change which pages you want to work with - just double click on the pages in the right column.

I've tried using Debenu products, but with little success. They were slow, they would crash, and sometimes they just couldn't deliver what they advertised. But I might revisit their products, who knows maybe they are better now.

well, I'm glad you told me that - I was just going to report that you couldn't select pages to use with the pro version either...

I think that the speedy method is the not interactive method as gDoc.
There are similar programs to this.
Able to insert or determine what pages indicating its numbers. But is not really in the drag and drop method.
I think
