    How to merge multiple files into a single PDF ?


    Hi List ;

    I have needs to merge a gnucash invoice which I can print to file as a .ps
    (postscript file) and then use ps2pdf to create a pdf with a spreadsheet for
    expenses and images of the receipts. I would like to push all this into a
    single multi-page PDF to submit to my client for payment. Any ideas on how to
    pull this off?

    I'm not sure about the PS step, but if there's a way to export gnucash to OpenOffice (or Excel :shudders, then you can very easily print to a PDF, and each sheet will be it's own, nicely formatted page within the PDF.

    Thanks for the tip. pdftk is great! But, of course, the directions are terrible for simpletons like me. I find this the norm in linux. I just wanted to put three ps pages into one pdf file. Didn't need to know how to build a rocket. Figured it out anyway.
