This function is a tried and true tool I use "all the time" successfully in MS Windows Explorer. Now the option does not appear after selecting files. Must get it back!
You can use the Combine Feature in Acrobat for this.
You can also open a Acrobat and drag all of the TIFF files into the Acrobat screen to create a PDF
If you no longer are able to do this, try repairing Acrobat and check.
Bernd, I have used the Windows Explorer directory with right-clicking up to 45 files and combined successfully for perhaps ten years. Some problems sometimes occur and individual files (tiff) must be opened and printed to .pdf. Just recently in both my pc and laptop, both Windows 7, the option to combine files in a .pdf format is not present (intermittantly) in the Windows explorer right click situation. As Rave pointed out above, Acrobat has a Combine option in the file dropdown which works.
I would like to be able to select files in Windows Explorer, right-click, and combine. Is there an answer to what might be inhibitying this option from appearing? Thanks.
What version of Acrobat are you running on Windows 7? Have you run an update lately?
Like the others, I'd recommend the Combine feature which allows drag and drop and more control of the combining workflow (e.g., you can change the order before combining by dragging in the Combine Files dialog).
Acrobat 9 Pro Version 9.5.4. My very brief experience with dragging files to the Acrobat screen is the bookmarks are lost. When combining multiple tif files, the bookmarks are critical. They can be recreated, but nice not to have to. I haven't tried dragging/dropping to the combine files dialog.
