10.4: Use Automator to combine PDFs
Authored by: drewk on Jun 16, '05 11:52:46AM
Insert the Automator action "Finder / Sort Finder Items" and select the criteria to sort on. You can sort by name, time, keyword, label, etc.

So you workflow would be:
  • Finder / Get Selected Finder Items
  • [Inserted Step] Finder / Sort Items (Set the 'By' and ascending/descending appropriate to your files to combine)
  • PDF: Combine PDF Pages (Option: Append)
  • Finder / Open Finder Items

    This assumes that some form of sorting of your files delivers what you want your final PDF order to be. If not -- check into the Automator Finder Rename route.

    Beautiful. That worked like a charm.

    My first use of Automator and I'm amazed at how easy it is...
