Acrobat has an option to Reduce File Size which reduces the size of the pdf file without altering the measurements of each page. Is there a way to do this in Preview?
Marj: Yes. You can go to File, Export in Preview, then at the bottom before you save choose Reduce File Size under Quartz Filter. See https://macmost.com/advanced-print-as-pdf.html
Gary, using your four-page brochure example, is it possible to paste pages 2 and 3 together horizontally so that it looks like a two-page interior spread?
Kurt: You can view any PDF like that. Just go to View, Two Pages in the Preview menu.
I'm surprised. you didn't mention pressing command+shift+i to INSERT documents into the current one. I use that all the time. Once selected it gives you the option of where to place the new docs (before or after the current selected page).
I’m looking for a way to merge 2, 8.5x11 PDFs into 1, 11x17 pdf?
Mike: That's a whole different issue. You are talking about grabbing elements of PDFs and placing them in different documents in a new layout. The best way is to go back to whatever app you used to develop the content in the first place.
Thank you for this video. I used to use an online service to do this on my old macbook since that preview version (at least I don't think) allowed this. In any event, I didn't use Preview to read pdf docs.
Thank you for sharing the video. Very useful
Selecting multiple images (not pdf) and export as pdf, 'only' single file is being saved as pdf. It is contrary to "select multiple images" and "export as pdf". Why? I didn't understand.
If multiple images are required to be merged in one pdf file, first, all images should be converted into pdf file, next merge them. This requires heavy work if you have numerous images.
Selecting multiple images and saving by file > print > Save as Pdf is working but its view is not same as other pdf view.
