New documents can be assembled from several single documents.
PDF Automation Server (PAS) can receive PDF documents from multiple sources concurrently, including email, FTP servers, and local or network folders. Processes can then be defined independently for each document source to perform a number of different functions on the documents.

PAS supports the following PDF processing functions: printing, setting security, conversion to images, merging, flattening, and extraction of form field data, importing, exporting, and flattening of annotations, text extraction, assembling, splitting, merging, digital signatures, and stamping.
