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 ⟩
