1. Default Order when combining PDF Files
I suppose this is a new idea, because it's not really a bug. Here's the summation of my problem/idea:
I scan files to my email using our copy machine/scanner. I then open and combine these files into single binders using AA Pro DC. To do this, I use the "Create PDF" tool from the tools menu, and then, from the "Create a PDF from any format" menu that appears, I select the "Multiple Files" and "Combine Files" option. When I click on the "NEXT" box, I can then choose to "Add Open Files," which is the option I use most often.
However, when I "Add Open Files," and select the files I want to include, the order in which the files arrange themselves is always backward. The files will arrange themselves in reverse order, from highest number to lowest, rather than lowest to highest. I can rearrange them by dragging them into the correct order, but if I have a number of documents it takes some time, so it would be helpful if there was a way for them to default the other way around - lowest file number to highest.
For example, in my email inbox I currently have 5 separate PDF files attached to 5 separate emails that were created from a single scanned document, which contained 94 pages. The attachments are named by the copy machine/scanner as "0898001; 0898015; 0898037; 0898056; and 0898_079," indicating the cumulative number of pages in the document. (ie. The first PDF file contains pages 1-14, the second pages 15-36, the third pages 37-55, etc.)
However, when I combine them into a single file in AA Pro DC, they always initially arrange themselves in reverse order, so that 0898079 is in the first position, and then 0898056, etc. I can drag them into the correct order before the single file is actually created, but it would be helpful if they defaulted the other way around.
Thanks so much.
You can simply sort them in increasing or decreasing order by switching to List View instead of Thumbnail View while combining the documents in Acrobat.
You can refer the following link to know which button is for List View.
Let us know if that solves your purpose.
