Also, there's a portable app for that. :) This is a one to one file creation so it won't compress the output PDF. So if you have 300MB of PDF's, the output file will be one giant 300MB PDF.

In recent months we have been scanning manuals for household equipment we own, like appliances, electronics, tools, etc. Or, we have downloaded a manual in PDF from a manufacturer. Often there are notes I have made in a separate file and it would be nice to include those with the PDF file I get from my scanner. It sounds like this could be a big help in doing that. Thank you.
