How to combine input files of different types into a single output file

In Readiris 16 you can open input files of different types, such as Microsoft Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint files, image PDF files and other image files and convert them into a single output file of the same type. For example, you can combine the content of a Word file, .TIF file and PowerPoint file into a searchable PDF output file.

To combine different input files into a single output file:

  • Click the From File button.
  • Select the files you want to process, and click Open.
  • Click the required output file format in the Output File group.
  • In the Window that opens click Save to save the file.


  • In Windows Explorer select the different files you want to convert.
  • Right-click the selection and point to Readiris.
  • Select one of the conversion options:
    • Convert to Word
    • Convert to Excel
    • Convert to PDF

Readiris will generate a single file containing the selected files in alphabetical order.
This new file will take the name of the folder containing the selected files.
The Save As dialog window opens when a file with the same name already exists.
