If I have 15 individual PDF's and want to join them into one document, how do I go about this? Do I need a full version of Acrobat or Distiller?

Thanks,

SG.

Nice... good to know.
I always learn something new on MR every day!

EDIT: BTW, it works great. I've already used it for a project.

Thanks for the tip! Very clean and easy to use.
I chose one of the graphical interfaces instead of the command line.

I can highly recommend PDFLab. I combine PDFs all time so I've tried them all. This is the best and easiest to use, hands down. Some of them screw up font embedding, which is a fatal flaw IMO. PDFLab works perfectly every time.

Not quite "spot on"

You can merge PDFs using Preview as well; just drag the icons from the drawer of one document to the drawer of the other "master" document...
You can IFF (If and Only IF) You're running 10.5 or better. This feature does not exist in 10.4......and if it does, please tell me how to active it, because I can't do it in 10.4.11 Preview.

One sweet App!

I just tried PDFLab and I must say, I like it!. I really like the "watermark" option...........sweet!

CombinePDF is good and worked well also but I didn't find the watermark option.

JoinPDF didn't work for me.....haven't figure out why. It keeps saying "can't get new.pdf".

Using Preview in Snow Leopard will not combine PDFs

Before I installed Snow Leopard I was able to combine and reorder pdfs using Preview by dragging and dropping the thumbnail(s) from one pdf document into another as suggested by MacBoeing. After I installed Snow Leopard, while I can combine them using that technique, I can't save the combined file. Anyone have a similar problem? Any solutions out there? Thanks
