    Merging PDF files

    I've tried using an automator / preview script found here, however the resulting file was substantially larger than the individual components and had caused an error in Acrobat.

    The easiest way to do it is to use LaTeX (assuming that you have it installed). Here is what I used to combine several files into one:

    Code:
    \documentclass[a4paper]{article}
    \usepackage{pdfpages}
    \usepackage[pdftex]{hyperref}
    \begin{document}
    
    \includepdf[pages=1-1]{001.pdf}
    \includepdf[pages=1-1]{002.pdf}
    \includepdf[pages=1-1]{003.pdf}
    \includepdf[pages=1-203]{004.pdf}
    \includepdf[pages=1-3]{005.pdf}
    \includepdf[pages=1-1]{006.pdf}
    \includepdf[pages=1-1]{007.pdf}
    \includepdf[pages=1-1]{008.pdf}
    \end{document} 
    I hope you'll find it useful.

    I second Blurg.

    PDFLab has all the capabilities you could ask for: Drag/Drop, Automated page selection for large ranges and documents, split, watermark, etc.

    It also happens to be free.

    I love the program. So what if it's only a PDF merge tool? It's intuitive and powerful. Good job, Fabien!

    You can use Preview if you are using Snow Leopard. In my case, I'm on Tiger and the only way I was able to merge over 40 files was with Batch PDF Merger, which I think will work on Tiger and Snow Leopard. Click here for batch pdf merger.

    The program took roughly 6 seconds to merge my files.
