Merging PDF Files
A great feature to add to the app will be the ability to merge multiple PDF files into one file.
Look forward to this update.
Thanks for your feedback! You can now merge files in Xodo. Using the navigation drawer (the menu that slides out when you tap the three horizontal lines button), if you select “Folders” or “All PDFs”, and then select one or more PDFs (by long pressing a file, and then tapping subsequent files), under the top overflow menu (three vertical dots), you will find a “merge” button.
This is a little hard to find, and in the next major version of Xodo it will be easier to locate, so please stay tuned for that.
Thanks again for your feedback!

The Dee method works !. Agree that interface is terribly confusing. Why no drop down menus with items such as print, copy, paste, merge, etc? If it wan't for The Dee method outlined here, I would have never guessed how to do it... Other than that, once you get the hang of it, merging goes well, just keep adding the documents you need and save at the end under the desired name.

The REAL website showing how to merge pdf files using Windows version:
That said, I am not sure why this software is getting so much praise. The layout is very confusing and not user friendly. Sure, it's free, but so are the hundreds of online pdf mergers.
The link given in the comments were only for the app. The windows10 desktop version could not find any merge option after selecting two or more pdfs. Please advise. thanks.
This does not seem to be a feature in the windows 10 desktop app

If you're using the windows desktop app there are some very helpful instructions here: http://feedback.xodo.com/knowledgebase/articles/818322-merging-documents Thanks!
Oh my god. I was applying to a residency and had minutes to submit multiple documents into one file (due to extreme procrastination) and needed to merge files immediately. Had to transfer documents from my computer to my phone and back, BUT IT WAS WORTH IT BECAUSE YOU SAVED ME. I annotated many of my notes in school with this program. For free. With no ads. I will never stop supporting Xodo docs after this.
Windows 10 user, came here after trying to find how to merge PDF on xodo desktop version. Didn't quite figure it out but just wanted to say you guys are awesome. Some of the comments are critical and I wanted to take the time to say that your app is much better than any others on the market. I suspect they know the same, but just want it tweaked to perfection. Thank you for taking the time to listen to the feedback and make continuous improvements based on them.
Keep fighting the good fight and don't get discouraged.
Not available on Windows 10 App. Will be uninstalling as it was the one thing I needed.
Would love a way to merge Google Drive files, including merging pdf files, on the Android app? (not the web app) Is this possible on the app?

To merge document, please follow the guide here:
Hey there just wanted to get an update on this feature - I'm still not able to find 'merge'. Any advice appreciated.
Xodo is much better than any other PDF viewers. It's even better than adobe PDF viewer.
Xodo is getting better and better! I use it on as a UWP on both Wind 10 and mobile. Looking forward to future updates!
I am unable to find the "merge" button on my Windows 10 Xodo program.
Yes, I agree...I have tried to find the merge button on the windows 10 app but after trying to follow the above instructions I am finally throwing my hands up!
I also find this feature appealing, because it would be an easy way to correct a pdf file that you worked many hours to add interaction and then you realize that there are some errors on some of the pages. Since it is impossible to edit a pdf file on a reader/annotator, this feature would give us the ability to do exactly this, by removing the pages in question and then adding the corrected pages that you created on ms word, for instance and saved in pdf format! If I had many votes to spare I would add more but there are other features that are important to me also.

This is a Xodo team member, just pointing out that on some of our platforms it is already possible to change page ordering. Currently, on the Windows apps, Android App, and iOS app, you can change page numbers by opening the thumbnail viewer (in the view mode menu).
On Windows Phone and our Web App this is not yet possible.
Thanks for your feedback.

Just as the title says. Would be incredibly powerful to be able to merge multiple pdfs and change page order on the fly.
I'd like the possibility to create a PDF from two or more PDFs by merging them
