    Hi, anyone know how to join two or three PDF documents to be one document?

    Also does anyone know how to make a word document that is made for A5 paper, print to PDF as if it were A5 too? I can't get it to be anything other than A4, which means that there is a LOT of white space around it which looks very unprofessional.

    If someone could help me out that would be great

    Thanks.
    Matt.

    I went to print an A5 document in Word and the saved PDF is A5...
    As long as the paper size in Word is A5 (under Page Setup), you should be right...

    And here's something to look at for joining PDFs:

    ...because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

    On-Site,

    I use a combination of two programs to do it easily. A command line tool (joinPDF) and a GUI front end (PDFjoiner). Both are avail as freeware from Version tracker. URL&#39;s below.

    PDFjoiner GUI for joinPDF

    Install joinPDF and PDFjoiner then only ever use the GUI. It&#39;s easy as. You can even split PDF&#39;s with the command tool.

    Cheers
    Dave

    If you&#39;re using Tiger, you can also use Automator

    I use PDFLab which can join and split PDF files. It also handles some graphics files incl. jpg and gif. You can also select specific pages from individual pdf files to include in the final product.
