    Combine PDF files in Finder?
    Can I combine multiple PDF files in Finder or some other program, just as Adobe Acrobat can? I only have Adobe Reader on my Mac but wanted to combine about 40 files into 1 file.

    You can do this easily using Preview, just takes a little practice.

    Try it, if you have problems or need pointers post back.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    This link should help. How to merge pdf files with preview in Leopard

    It's written for Leopard, but I tried it under Snow Leopard and the same technique works.

    Good luck,

    Good link!

    Honestly, I was in a hurry and being lazy so I didn't want to type out specific instructions. This saves that effort.

    Thanks for the info. I ended up using a free downloaded automator from a link provided to the site you gave.

    Here is the automator
    Apple - Downloads - Automator Actions - Combine PDFs

    I had about 30 PDF files I wanted to combine and the method with Previewer did not work flawlessly when I did it. The automator was simple as long as the files I chose in Finder were listed in descending order.
