10.5: Use Preview to merge or create multi-page PDFs
Authored by: luhmann on Feb 14, '08 06:58:18PM

A big problem with this is that when dragging and dropping a whole bunch of files from the finder, Preview won't respect the sort order in the finder - even if the files are named sequentially: 01.pdf, 02.pdf, 03.pdf etc. The only way to do it is to drag them in one-by-one. Apple can do better...

10.5: Use Preview to merge or create multi-page PDFs
Authored by: kingpix on May 03, '08 09:35:47AM

I've been trying to do this, but only succeeded when I realised that at the bottom of the sidebar is a button to change from the Table of Contents (which seems to be the default) and which the above methods don't work with to thumbnails which do.

10.5: Use Preview to merge or create multi-page PDFs
Authored by: jasonhavens on May 06, '08 07:52:51AM

When I dragged files, Preview seemed to add them in the correct order.

However, I have another issue regarding creation of PDF files using Preview. I compared using Preview to create a PDF file from a Word document (86Kb), and then used Adobe Acrobat Distiller (18Kb) version 7 to do so. The Preview-created PDF file was nearly five times larger. Does anyone know why this is or how it can be changed? Please note that I have both set to 300 dpi. Thanks in advance.
