    I use 'Command-4' to select parts of documents (web pages for example) on a daily basis. Most of the times, I open several of those in one Preview windows. However, when it's time to save them in .pdf format, Preview saves only the first page (thumbnail) even if I select all the thumbnails in the sidebar.

    Is there a way to save multiple one-page files in only one (multiple-page) .pdf file?


    Thanks for your help.

    All of your individual PDFs are draggable from the sidebar to other sidebars. Drag the individual files you want into the "master" file and save it.

    Thanks for your suggestion Demi-God. I've been doing that the last week or so. Don't know when I want to create a 10-20 page pdf file though ... Kinda time -consuming.

    There are a bunch of PDF combiners, I can't remember which ones are free and which ones aren't but they all do essentially the same thing. Google any of the following:

    Combine PDFs
    iCombiner
    PDFLab
    PDFMergeX
