10.5: Use Preview to merge or create multi-page PDFs- problems with fields overcome
Authored by: autiger86 on Jan 24, '11 09:28:36AM

I was trying to combine PDF files that have form fields that are editable, but the form field information was being lost. I tried to save several different quarters of IRS Form 941, but every time you drag and drop another quarter's file into the first quarter file in Preview, the field data disappears because both files have fields with the same name. This can be worked around by creating PDF-x files using Preview from the print menu. Click File > print > click on drop down "PDF" and then choose Save as PDF-X. The PDF-X version no longer has the fields, so they won't cause problems with each other.
