Add attachments to your PDF

There are times when you need to include additional information or supporting documents along with your PDF files. In this article, we will explore how you can set up PDFCreator to easily add attachments to your PDF files. This is one of several PDF automation features included in our PDF converter.

Why add attachments to PDF files?

PDF attachments offer several benefits, both for personal and professional use. By including attachments in your PDF files, you can:

  • Provide supplementary information: Attachments let you include additional details without having to edit the original PDF file. 
  • Simplify document organization: By bundling related files as attachments within a single PDF, you can simplify your document management process and avoid the hassle of separate file transfers. 
  • Keep related documents in one place: Attachments ensure that all related files are kept together, reducing the risk of accidental deletion or loss of critical information.
