Sets allows users to open a collection of documents in a single view with the pages organized in a specified sorted order, including any revisions and addenda. Users can navigate through multiple files as though they were one document without actually merging them into a single file. Additionally, files that normally cannot be combined due to PDF security or digital signatures can be viewed as a cohesive collection.
Sets can be opened in read-only mode by an unlimited number of users.
The Sets tab provides quick access to open, modify, create
