Starting from Soda PDF 14 you can create and apply bookmarks within merged documents. If you need to merge multiple files that already contain any bookmarks, they will be preserved upon merging, and you will see a list of them in the Bookmarks panel.

We have two additional modules. The OCR module allows you to recognize and edit text within any scanned document or image. We also have the E-Sign module that allows you to electronically sign PDFs and track and manage e-signatures in real-time. If those modules are not available for you, you can purchase them here.
