if you really want to do that by means of LibreOffice - check the answer here: I personally would use command line tool convert from ImageMagick, which allows to simply execute:

convert Dok1.pdf Dok2.pdf Dok3.pdf Dok4.pdf Dok1-4.pdf

on a command line to merge Dok1.pdf through Dok4.pdf into the combined single document Dok1-4.pdf.

Hope that helps.

I agree, I also use convert from imagemagick for the same purpose, it works fine

IMO ImageMagick is not the right tool for PDF (generally). It handles PDFs as raster images; so any vector data there turns into vector, both impairing fidelity and size.

Hi Well, the answer for doing it within LO has been provided. However, for the Linux types, I actually publish books that are pdf format and do them by chapter.

The absolute dead simple app in UbuntuLand for me was "PDFshuffler". In fact is is SO dead simple that there really just is not much there, basically a + sign for adding and a - sign for removing one can rearrange on the fly.

A later one that i have used is PDFsam which stands for "PDF split and merge". Both work jiffy and are in the repositories. jamess
