    Application to combine PDF files?


    Hi

    My partner has a lot of PDF files saved. She would like to combine some of them into single files. Any recomendations for applications to do this?

    Thanks
    Mike

    OK thanks! Those will do for now but what I was really looking for was a GUI utility.

    Copy the files into a single directory, and:
    Code:
    for file in *.pdf; do pdf2ps $file; done;
    cat *.ps > allcontent.ps
    ps2pdf allcontent.ps
    OK, you want a GUI, but it's prettey easy to make a script of this... or at least could be useful for other people

    You could try giving PDF-Shuffler a try. I haven't used it, there is a blog entry regarding it, with youtube vid even, but guess I haven't posted here enough to include a URL. I should fix that, huh?

    Anyhow if you google PDF-Shuffler, you'll find it. Looks pretty intuitive.

    To find the blog post I read, google
    bigbrovar PDF Shuffler

    Let me know how it works.
