I am wrapping up my manuscript for my first book, and one task is to build an index. This requires searching through hundreds of pages for key phrases. I was provided my proofs as PDF files, but separates. So, after a bit of searching using the OS X Finder and Preview I decided to merge these together. The task is VERY simple and requires no installation of any software. I used the automator to get it done.
Follow this gentleman’s article to the T, and you will be merging with no problems.
* BTW – this was my first foray into Automator, and I definitely will be going back…
