How to Split / Merge PDF Files | Lumin PDF
PDF is an abbreviation for Portable Document Format. The software was created by Adobe Corporation in 1992 to enable users to view documents, regardless of the operating system they use. This was a brilliant idea for distributing files; however, within a short time users started to notice that they had a hard time editing PDF files. Since then, even despite the emergence of the PDF editors, users find it hard to work and edit PDF files regularly.
