Infrequently I’m required to use a Windows computer to create something, and today I needed to combine 2 PDFs for our school newsletter and post them to our website. Our district is using DotNetNuke as our CMS (content management system) and for some reason our site pages need to be edited in Internet Explorer for Windows. (Strange things have happened when I’ve edited with my favorite browser on all platforms, Google Chrome.) I recorded a 7 minute, 45 second screencast today demonstrating how I use the free Windows software program “PDFmate PDF Converter Free” to combine 2 PDF files into a single file, and then publish that file to our school website.
