I'm still relatively new with mac. I thought I might have some questions for other mac users from time to time.

Right now, I need a cheap to free pdf program that can merge and split, and turn word docs into pdfs. Reliable, and not too spammy or comes with adware. I used to use pdf995 but it doesn't look like that works for mac.

And I do need this for a future feature coming to this website. Thanks!

On Mac you can natively "Print" anything to PDF.

You can use Preview to merge documents, just show the thumbnails and drag and drop.

I think I can figure that out. Glad I asked before trying to download anything. Thanks!

OK, and how do you take out a page that accidentally got added twice to a merged PDF?

In Preview, highlight the thumbnail of the page you don't want, and hit delete.

If for some reason it isn’t working, try quitting and relaunching and trying again.

You can always print to PDF, and just select the pages you want.

I do all kinds of PDF manipulation constantly. It’s fun and easy on Mac. There are great edit tools in Preview, and a lot of neat tricks you can do with printing to PDF. Happy to answer any questions!

Thanks, Falconer. I fiddled around with it and figured it out. I really appreciate your help!
