Historic book in PDF format.
« on: Friday 27 August 21 18:33 BST (UK) »
I have in my possession a local historical book which had been scanned by it's owner prior to e mailing to me.
On reading the book I soon become aware that a number of pages hed been missed from being scanned, I subsequently had the missing pages sent to me via  email so completing the book.
My problem is how do I merge the pages missed first time around to be integrated within the book?

Use PDF creator which is free to download. It's a virtual printer, making pdfs rather than paper copies. Print the various sections separately and then use the Merge facility to incorporate them into one pdf.

Does the above software work on a Mac?
Will be using a giant Mac with oodles of memory, somewhere in the region of 64Gb of memory!

Brian, you should be able to do it on a Mac without any additional apps. You do it via Preview. Here's the reference:

Commoners: DOUGAN (1844); FORD (1849); JOHNSTON (1850); BEATTIE (& LONG) (1856); BRICKLEY (1883).

There is a Mac version

https://pdf.wondershare.com/pdf-editor-mac/free-pdf-printer-for-mac.html

That's odd. All I know is that the official Bullzip site makes no mention of a Mac version, so my initial reaction to this is that it looks a bit dodgy.

However, since Peter says there's an inbuilt Mac solution for Brian's problem I'm not inclined to spend time investigating further, and as I'm not a Mac user myself it wouldn't be of any use to me either.
