Multiple files consisting of multiple formats can be loaded into a single virtual LEADDocument to be processed by the DocumentConverter, which results in a single merged document.

For more background information and real-world examples, please visit this blog post:
Solution to 4 Common First-world Problems – Convert and Merge to PDF

private static void MergeAndConvertToPdf(IReadOnlyCollection<string> inputFiles)
	ConsoleHelper.WriteStatus("Converting Files... ");
	using (var documentConverter = new DocumentConverter())
		var firstFile = GetFirst(inputFiles);
		var outputFile = GetNewFilePath(firstFile);

		var loadOptions = new LoadDocumentOptions {UseCache = false};
		var createOptions = new CreateDocumentOptions {UseCache = false};

		using (var ocrEngine = OcrEngineManager.CreateEngine(OcrEngineType.LEAD, false))
			ocrEngine.Startup(null, null, null, null);
			documentConverter.SetOcrEngineInstance(ocrEngine, false);

			using (var masterDocument = DocumentFactory.Create(createOptions))
				masterDocument.AutoDisposeDocuments = true;
				foreach (var inputFile in inputFiles)
					masterDocument.Pages.AddRange(DocumentFactory.LoadFromFile(inputFile, loadOptions).Pages);

				var jobData =
					DocumentConverterJobs.CreateJobData(masterDocument, outputFile, DocumentFormat.Pdf);
				jobData.JobName = "merge and convert job";
				var job = documentConverter.Jobs.CreateJob(jobData);
				documentConverter.Jobs.JobOperation += JobOperationEventHandler;
				documentConverter.Jobs.JobOperation -= JobOperationEventHandler;

				DisplayResultMessage(job, outputFile);
