I am trying to combine multiple pdf files into 1 file.  I keep getting this error -

"page extraction is not allowed in the source pdf documents"

How do I fix this please?

Hi Kathmac,

Sorry for the delay in response.

As the error message shared above "Page extraction is not allowed in the source pdf documents", this is a document specific message that generally appears if any of the pdf file is secured and restricted to make any further changes in it.

You need to check which pdf is secured, Open pdf>Document Properties>Security>Page Extraction (allowed or not allowed)

Note: Secured document's properties can only be changed by the document owner, or if you own the document.

Regards,

Akanchha

You need Acrobat to be able to do it. It's not possible in the free Reader.
