Preview replaces many - of not all - of these functions. I used this before, but no more. No need. If you create and store a PDF with different pages (splash, clear page, sign-off, ++) you can simply copy those pages to the desired target doc. in Preview.

Unfortunately after trying to add my first pdf document with this program it froze up.... took several minutes before my attempt to force quit it worked... even worse it effected some of the other programs that were running so after I had already quit PDFLab they continued to run buggy.

It seems buggy and not that reliable. Random errors about pdf-output occurs and I've experienced that it alters pdf-files making white borders for example.

Preview can do the same job by selecting, dragging and dropping pages between document drawers of pdf-document (apple-d in preview). Not an elegant solution, but it seems to work a bit more reliable.

I don't use this every day, but it always works for me when I need to combine/reorder/split/rotate pdf's. Great utility!

The current version (2.0.2) works perfectly. It seems to me that the old problems are gone.

I should point out that despite my previous remarks, I still use this program all the time regardless of the flaws. Hey, it's free and it combines pdfs.

I wish this very handy tool wouldn't crap out so much during the excrutiating process of combining/splitting PDFs. When it works, it works really well, but it's a touch on the very, very slow side, and it only works about a third of the time. Stabilize it and speed it up and you'll have a winner.
