how do I save combined pdfs as a binder, not as a portfolio?
Not possible with Acrobat Reader.
Copy link to clipboard
If you are using Acrobat
Go to File > Create > Combine Files into a Single PDF...
From the combine files windows select the PDFs you would like to combine
Click on the Gear icon at the top center
Uncheck the option Save As PDF Portfolio
Click OK then Combine button
Thanks for your replied abhissha it worked for me using Creative Cloud Adobe Acrobat Reader. It is so simple; but their is not online help. It will make sense to have an option in Save As, or in the Preferences but there is not. Searching with in Adobe is not efficient; not results. Adobe have a tutorial explanation but it overlooks to mention the "Click on the Gear icon at the top center" hence, the final file is a Portfolio.
The links / tutorials below do not even mention the Gear.
