Installation and usage

PDFBinder can be installed on Microsoft Windows systems using a pretty installer, which can be downloaded from the project website.

In order to use PDFBinder on other platforms - or if the installer seems like a bad choice for other reasons - PDFBinder can be built installed from source. Grab the latest source package the GitHub repository. Use whatever C# compiler you have available to build the project, or use the provided project file for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

Hopefully, the user interface of PDFBinder is pretty self-explanatory. You can add source PDF documents by using the "Add source documents..." button, or by dragging the files in from a file browser. Documents can be moved up, moved down or remoevd by pressing the respective buttons in the toolbar. Press the "Save output..." button when your list of documents seems fine.

If PDFBinder was installed using the pre-built installer, an extra option should have been automatically added to your context menu (the menu that on Windows displays when right clicking a file) for all PDF files. Select any number of PDFs in a file browser and choose the "Add to PDFBinder..." option to bring up the PDFBinder interface with those files already in the list.
