There are a couple of ways to merge documents in Foxit PDF Editor. The supported commands are "drag and drop", Windows right-click menu, and the application built-in menus.
You can merge one or multi-files into an existing opened file.
Inside Foxit PDF Editor, open a PDF document that you want to merge other files into, open Pages navigation panel.
Browse your folder to locate a file or files, drag and drop them into the navigation panel.
Note: the file type could be any supported files as listed below.
You can also merge only part of pages in an opened PDF document into other opened PDF document. Here are procedures.
In the current opened document, for example say a.pdf, open Pages navigation panel.
Open the other PDF document where you want to extract pages from. Open Pages navigation panel, click to select a page or press "ctrl+ mouse click" to select multi-pages, drag and move your cursor to the tab name as a.pdf that you want to merge pages into (hold your mouse). You will notice your current tab is automatically switched to a.pdf.
- Now, you are in the a.pdf document screen, move your cursor to the navigation panel, locate a position and release your mouse.
Tips:When your mouse is hovering over the pages down or up in the navigation panel, the pages will scroll down or up so that you can locate a desired place to drop your extracted pages.

Compare with "Create PDF files" feature,the "Merge documents/pages" feature doesn't support the following document formats:
