PDFsam is a free PDF editor which is rare to find because almost all the PDF editors available are paid ones. Actually calling it a PDF editor will not be just at all because it has much more features than a PDF editor. The name of this software PDFsam is actually the short form of PDF Split And Merge and those are the best things this free PDF editor does perfectly. There are two versions of this software, one is enhanced with the basic features and functions and the other is enhanced which has some advanced tools included.
PDFsam does not have any eye-catching interface and it may look tough to use at the first glance but it is actually a simple and easy to use software. After opening the main interface you will find the big buttons at the right side including Add, Remove, Move Up, Move Down and Clear. Click on the Add button at first. Then select the PDF file or files you want to merge or split and this free PDF splitter will do the rest.
You can select multiple files at the same time. Then you can move up or down the files to arrange in order according to your necessity. You can do many more additional editing now in the files and even you can select the PDF files partially. After all your editing and selection comes the final step. Just click on the Run button and wait for the result. If there is no error then you will see that the progress bar will continue up to 100% and you should get the result. You will learn all the other tweaks in their documentation from your own experiences.
The features of PDFsam are covering all the splitting and merging you can imagine. Besides simple splitting and merging, you can extract different parts of the document into a single document, rotate pages of PDF files, reorder pages, and compose a different PDF by pulling pages from different PDF documents. All these features are included in the PDFsam basic version.

- Easy to use and simplistic interface
