I would like to know how I can (if I can) merge or split two pdf? Basically I have two files with several pages each and i want to have pages from one file to go into the other one into which I would like to sort differently the pages.

How it is possible to achieve that?

Many thanks

    Open both files with preview. Drag the thumbnail on the right to the other file's thumbnail side bar. (make sure the thumbnail sidebar is visible)

    Unless the author of the pdf document put some sort of security restriction on the document, you should be able to open it in Preview and then copy and paste each page into a separate TextEdit document. You can then save the TextEdit documents and open them in Preview and rearrange the pages as you see fit by using the sidebar.

    This is kind of a round about approach so maybe someone else will post a better method.
