In this article, you will learn how to add pages to a PDF file. You will be learning what a PDF is and why you would want to add pages to it. You will also look at methods for adding multiple pages, either at the end of your document or by adding individual pages.

What is a PDF?

PDF stands for Portable Document Format, a file format that preserves the layout of the original document and makes it easy to view and print. It’s also a type of file that can be created by using Adobe Acrobat or other programs, such as Microsoft Word.

You can find PDFs on websites like Dropbox and Google Drive as well as in your email inbox. A PDF is often sent when you purchase something online or sign up for software updates. According to Adobe Acrobat’s professionals, “Some people even send out PDF documents in their emails because they don’t want to risk losing any formatting when they send files back and forth between them (such as with Microsoft Word).”

How to add pages to a pdf

To add pages to a PDF:

  • Import the new pages you want to add by clicking [File] > [Import]. Then select the page format you prefer and click Open.
  • Select all of the pages that are already in your document, and then drag them into position on top of the new page(s). You will see guides appear so that you can align everything properly—that’s it! (If this doesn’t work, try saving your file first.)
  • Save your file as normal when you’re done adding pages or editing existing ones by clicking [File] > [Save].

Adding pages at the end of the document

  • Open the PDF file in Adobe Reader.
  • Choose File > Open With > Acrobat (or just double-click on your PDF).
  • Click the Add Pages button.
  • Select the pages you want to add and click Add or click Cancel to close the dialog box without adding any pages to your document, which is what is recommended if you are only trying out adding some new pages before using them later.

Adding individual pages to a PDF file

In order to add a page to PDF, you’ll need to use the File menu in Adobe Acrobat. The steps are:

  • Open your document and navigate to the page you want to add.
  • Select “Insert Page from File.”
  • Navigate to the folder containing your file, select it, and click Open.

Adding multiple pages to a PDF file

It’s possible to add multiple pages to a PDF file, but only if you’re using Adobe Acrobat X or later. To do this, first, open the PDF file in Acrobat and then select the pages that you want to add to your document. To select multiple pages at once, hold down Shift as you click on each page’s thumbnail. Then click on File > Add Pages (or press Ctrl/Cmd + M). In the Add Pages dialog box, choose which layout orientation will be used for these new pages: Portrait or Landscape.

Next, choose whether or not those new pages should have their own page numbering sequence (if so), then click OK. Your selected files will now be added with their own page numbers and layouts.

There are many ways to add pages to a pdf document, and every method has its benefits and disadvantages. You can use the built-in tools in Acrobat Professional or try one of the many third-party programs out there. In addition, there are some things you should keep in mind when deciding which method works best for you.
