Safari text zone formatting in pdfs.

Hello,

When I add/insert a text zone in a pdf under Safari, the text I type
appears "centererd" sorry I don't know how to say this in English. , I
mean it will display like this ("...." for empty space):

..............................texttexttext......................
..........texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttext........

I would like the text to appear centered to the left , like this , instead:

texttexttext
texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttext

How do you do this ?
I can't find this out in the Help section and I don't know the english
words to search for on the web.
Thanks

Hello,

with Snow leopard and Prewiew 5.0.1 it is fine, effectively you have to drag the new PDF doc on top of the list and then, print, select the two pages, but print in a PDF doc, and select two pages on one, so then the two pdf docs are merged in one;

If you're using Pages, you don't have to go to File > Print to create a PDF. Go instead to File > Export > PDF. You can also create a Word .doc this way, without using Word.

For some time, I've been using Preview very successfully to manage my PDFs, especially for combining documents. However, since installing Snow Leopard (with Preview 5.0.1) on my iMac the function has not been available. Fortunately, I have not installed Snow Leopard on my MacBook and I am still able to use it for managing PDFs.

Is there some way around this difficulty? I've looked at preferences for a possible solution and I've looked on the Apple website, but to no avail.

Any advice would be very welcome.

After making all these edits to multiple pdfs, how do you save them as one pdf booklet?

Dragging the preview pages on top of one another seemed to merge them into a multi page single pdf file.  It seems to copy them so you have to delete the single pages/files afterwards. You can also rearrange the pages inside the multipage document.

Your article was great but it stopped one step short of helping me. I'm using Preview 5.0.1 and running system 10.6.2.I have about 20 short pdf files that are chapters of a book. They are titled (for example) 01 Love, 02 Hate, 03 Life, 04 Death, etc. I want to combine the chapters and save as the book title.After collating my files, I can't figure out a way to save the collated file. I've tried several variations on the save or save as... . I've slected all, copy, New from clipboard. Nothing seems to save the collated file and retain the name of the 20 files. Help?
