1.3. Combining PDF Pages

Documents sent to the print center via web submission need to be in a final, ready-to-print format.  i.e. We cannot accept a multi- page pdf file with the request to print just pages2 and 4.

Below are instructions for editing pdf files using Preview.

If your document opens with Adobe Reader by default, you can change it to Preview by highlighting the file, right click and choose Open With.  Select Preview.  You can also highlight the file, go to File menu and choose Open With - Preview


If you want pages 2 and 4 of a multiple page PDF file, use the Print function in Preview.

I’ve opened the 2016-17 Staff Directory (49 pages) and want to save pages 2 and 4 and have just those 2 pages submitted to the print center.  The process is to save page 2 and page 4 individually and then combine them into one new pdf file.

Open document and choose File – Print from the top menu:


In the Print dialog box that opens, change the page selection to just page 2, and then from the bottom left-hand corner, click the drop-down and choose ‘Save as PDF’.



Now save your single page pdf file.


Repeat the above process and save page 4.


Now open the newly saved Page2 file by itself again using Preview, and insert the page4 pdf file.  Go to the Edit menu at the top, Insert and Insert Page from File and choose your page 4 from the Finder window that opens.


You will now have page 2 and 4 combined to create one pdf.  It will be named as the original file you opened.


This 2 page pdf is what you can submit to the Print Center.
