        // The owner's password is required to merge encrypted PDFs
        PdfDocument pdfB = new PdfDocument(inputPathPdfB, password);

        // Merge the two documents
        MergeDocument document = MergeDocument.Merge(pdfA, pdfB);

        // Append an additional document
        PdfDocument pdfC = new PdfDocument(inputPathPdfC);
        document.Append(pdfC, startPage, 1);

        // Save the PDF
        document.Draw(outputPath);
    }
}

Remarks

This class should be used when you will be referencing an existing PDF document more than once. Using a PDFDocument is more efficient than specifying a file path because the document will not need to be parsed again on each subsequent reference. This class is safe for multithreaded operations.
