Set a default order for when combining files
Rather than re-ordering and re-arranging pdfs within a combined file, I would like to be able to determine the order files are compiled. This can be by file title (alphabetically) or others. Right now when I combine several files into one pdf, they are scrambled out of order and I have to rearrange manually which can be cumbersome for larger compilations.
Thanks for your feature request. We have added it in our backlog which will be prioritized based on other items. We will keep you posted with the progress.

Seriously. Why do I have to spend so much time organizing files?!!!
It's insane. I have 14 files literally named in sequential order (e.g. file 1, file 2, file 3 etc.) I want to combine into one .pdf. Combine files, puts them in 14, 6, 3, 8,1 ...

This would be incredibly helpful. Hopefully there'll be an update soon. The folders our pdfs are in are alphabetical, but the pdfs not. We need the pdfs in the order their folders are in. And when dealing with 50 pdfs at a time every month, having to manually sort them one at a time is impractical. I don't understand why this isn't a higher priority.
Great Idea. Also need to Extract Multiple pages from Binder/Document with out doing multiple continuous blocks of pages.
Bernard, I ran the patch to update the new version, and I was able to drag and drop and they did not open. try running update

Also, when dragging .pdfs to the combining screen it opens them instead of simply placing them - it is a huge painpoint for my needs
How would you like the feature to work? When selecting multiple pdf's to combine I'd like adobe to arrange them in order of selection (Based on which item was selected first). Nitro PDF does that.
Why is this feature important to you? It saves time when you extract pages from emails and you select each in an order you want them to be combined. Otherwise you end up dragging each selection to arrange while creating the binder.
