10.6: Combining documents in Snow Leopard's Preview
Authored by: goldfinch on Jul 09, '11 05:03:30PM

Here's what I've learned, doing this in 10.6.6:

To merge documents A and B (with B's pages coming after last page in A) , open A, view sidebar, drag title-bar icon from B (or B's pages from its own sidebar, but icon's easier) to the sidebar in A. Drag the icon or pages to be added to a spot near the last page of A, and watch for a blue rounded box to appear. That box means that the new pages will actually be added instead of merely opened in the same window as A. The location of the new pages is determined by a horizontal blue line---before the last of of A or after it, for example. Drop you pages within the box at the line where you wish them to appear. Check the title-bar of A now; it should reflect the new total number of pages. BUT if it says something like "2 documents, 8 total pages" then you have not merged successfully. Choose undo and do it again. Failure to drop added pages within the blue box results in failure to merge.
