10.5: Use Preview to merge or create multi-page PDFs
Authored by: robm on Nov 29, '07 08:50:49AM

I ran into an issue yesterday that after merging two pdfs created by Indesign in Preview, the saved pdf looks fine to us on Leopard and Tiger, but in Acrobat Reader 7 on a PC the program claims there are fonts missing - and it displayed only generic, wrong fonts. But the original pdfs display fine on a PC - so the re-save feature clearly changes something to the pdfs' internal working.

Actually, upgrading to Reader v. 8 on the PC fixes this problem. Great!

This is great to know (I ran into this problem last week and didn't find this solution), but it really shouldn't require v. 8, right? There's no reason Preview should save PDFs that are weirdly incompatible with v. 7.
