Hi everyone!

Does anyone know if it is possible without Acrobat Writer to compile a .pdf file from several separate pdf files, as well as to create an index of the compilation created?

If this is not possible, do you know any other application ,if possible free, that would enable to create such compilation and an index too?

Thanks in advance for your help.

pdf edit from 995 software Nov 6, 2005

www.pdf995.com

is where you will find them.

They have several things for free - a pdf "maker" which installs as a printer driver and pdfedit which allows to combine several pdf files into one (I tried it - it works) and some indexing options (haven't tried them yet - I've only just installed the software)

The drawback is that the software has nag screens. It is free (not shareware), but there is a stupid little progress bar with an ad which urges you to buy some of their advanced stuff.

Other than that it is uninvasive and from what I've read, is reasonably reputable software.
