Quite often I receive a document to print double sided but I receive it as two single PDF files. Other times I have two documents that came from two different applications (for example one from pages and one from numbers) and I want to print them back-to-back on one piece of paper using my double sided printer. Here’s how to print to PDF files together using OS X Preview.

With Mountain Lion (OSX 10.8) Apple have made it even simpler to join two pdf files together – you just need to drag any pdf file into the thumbnail window of an existing pdf file and the two will be merged together!
Note: this is different for different versions of OS X.

I have just downloaded a PDF magazine. It comes as double pages. That is, the first page is a single A4 portrait page, the second and third pages are two a4 pages combined into an A3 landscape page, and so on. Now I have tried to view it on a number of ebook readers on the iPad but non of them can handle two pages side by side. I want to read in portrait mode, and read one page at a time.
In portrait mode if I view a double page it squishes it up to take just half the screen. If I zoom in, the zoom resets back to small when I change to the next page.
There seem to be hundreds of ebook readers out there. Anyone found one that handles double a4 pages?
(I’ve tried iBooks, Kindle, Blio, Kobo and iPdf and none of them work!)
