10.6: Combining documents in Snow Leopard's Preview
Authored by: GeraintX on Dec 07, '09 12:41:25AM

Have tried the above... No luck!

I have 9 screen images i want to combine into one pdf. They are jpgs. Whenever i put them all in one document in preview and go to print dialogue there is only the one page!... The first image.

I have tried dragging, saving as pdf and reopening and adding the other images but no joy. Anyone got the patience to do a step by step idiot guide.

Many thanks

Yeah, trying the same thing here.
Was first so amazed, that I can send a shell glob like *.profile.png to Preview just by using the 'open' command, but what do I do know with the 21 single documents, if I need to combine them into a single pdf?
A solution I found is to select-all and then use the menu entry File-Print Selected Images.
This now of course can be printed again into a PDF, but isn't there a more direct way to make 1 document out of several that are open inside 1 window?

Michael

That has worked perfectly for my needs... thank you.

I never thought of the "Print Selected Image" command! I was simply going straight to the print dialogue box via the "Print" command.

Thanks again
