The “Create Booklet” PDF action stopped working when Mojave was released. It seems to be to do with Apple requiring an increased level of application signing. What this means is that the old version of Create Booklet (that was free) that I wrote about here no longer works. You need to download the new version from the Apple App Store. (It costs $20). I’m not sure if it’s worth $20 just to be able to make a booklet. It may be worth it to you. In my opinion it should be a feature that the built in OSX print driver can do. But for now I cannot find any free options to do this.

On a PC you can have 2 documents open  in the same Microsoft Word window (just select ‘View Side by Side’ but you can’t do that on the Mac version of Word. I’ve just written to Microsoft to encourage them to add it to the Mac version. Feel free to join me if it’s something you think would be useful. Just go to the smiley face icon in the top right-hand corner of Microsoft Word and click on “tell us what can be better.”

Here’s what I wrote:

I’d love to see the ‘View side by side’ feature in Word for Mac so you can see two documents in the same window. I see it is available on a PC. I know technically it is not what Apple recommends in there UI guidelines, but there are other OS X apps that allow multiple docs open in the same window. e.g. text wrangler allows you to open separate documents the same window.  I regularly use full screen mode and it is very limiting not to be able to open 2 Word documents side by side on a large screen. Thanks!

Apple have retained the ability to merge two PDF files with the  built in ‘preview’ app in OSX El Capitan.  As with  previous versions of OS X, there are 3 different ways that you can do this.  1. You can merge them into 1 document  in Preview as you are opening them. 2. You can open them as seperate documents in Preview then merge them by printing them to one pdf file. 3. You can open them as seperate documents in Preview and drag pages from one to the other. Continue reading ⟩

pages

I was recently given a Pages document to print for someone but the picture was too dark. In this article I described how to get a photo out of keynote, so I thought I’d give it a go with Pages – it worked!  I was able to extract the Photo as full resolution, edit it in Photos App, then put it back in the Pages document to print. Here’s how.

Merge 2 pdf files

With every release of OS X Apple seems to slightly change the way to merge two pdf documents. I’ve previously written on how to merge 2 pdf files in Mountain Lion (10.8) and how to merge two pdf files in Lion or earlier. Here’s how to do it in OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Continue reading ⟩
