Merging pdfs in Adobe Acrobat
Both files have the Pdf/x-a standard. Both were originally created in Adobe illustrator and saved as a pdf. Due to the artboard limit of 100 i had to create 2 files.
I went ahead and got the free trial of Adobe Acrobat dc.
I went ahead and merged them and the 2 files combined are now 73mb. I don't see much in terms of setting for the quality, just Small, default and larger. Am i missing something?
Should i be concerned? The original files for this particular merge were a combination of formats (.eps and .png, some with transparancy) and it appears the file retained its pdf/x-a compliance.
Also, if the main thing i need acrobat for is pdf mergers, would i be better off buying version 9-10 instead? Would that work just as well? I'm not keen on the whole $15 a month subscription.
