As an avid study-guide making student, I’m constantly making PDF files out of the various documents that I encounter and create. While it’s great to be able to “Print” to PDF directly from within most apps, the manipulation of said PDFs has never been as simple — until now. Enter PDFLab from iConus. This excellent freeware app is chock full of tools that make PDF manipulation, and specifically merging, super easy on your computer, without the need for chunky, expensive applications like Acrobat.
From launch, it’s very obvious that PDFLab was created with one thing in mind: easy-to-use tools to make the most out of your PDF files. The main window is simple and plain, and the toolbar across the top is super straight-forward and clean. After you add a file, either by dragging it right onto the window, or using the Add File dialog, PDFLab analyzes the document and allows you to rotate, exclude pages, and other things of that sort.
The sidebar/drawer allows you to choose which pages you want to include in the final document, and other settings such as rotation and repetition.
The toolbar can easily be customized to your liking. You can reorganize the order, add/remove buttons, and control flexible space. It’s useful if you know that you need certain buttons but not others.
