Hi Guys,

I've spent a good part of today scanning an MSX book into PDF. However I have missed two pages at some point and now need to edit the PDF and insert the two pages I've missed and since scanned. I am asking what Software you would recommend for this task ? I do not trust online services as I feel they have the power to create book stores from users hard work and get money from subsequent download fees. This used to be free to do but it now seems that everyone and there uncle is trying to extort money from someone else's software or hard work. Little wonder I'm going back to an 8 Bit machine. Simpler days. Anyway of you can advise me just drop me a message or if you can help them PM me !

PDF Split And Merge (aka PDF SAM), maybe?

I'm confident that the built-in Preview application on the Mac can do that; I could probably assist if the proper tools aren't otherwise readily available.

Which OS?

I've used PDF-shuffler previously for a similar situation, and it worked fine for me. It is written in Python, I'm not sure but I think you can use it in Windows and OS X too if you get the right libraries (pyGTK and somesuch); probably way easier in a Linux, though (just install it trough your package manager).

Private message sent, for the record. Or if the plan is to publish these things anyway, please feel free just to put them somewhere for final assembly.

Btw. I noticed there is PDF booklet thing for windows which bundles a ready-to-use PDF-shuffler, in case using it in Windows is a chore. I'm not sure it is since I don't use Windows, it could be quite straightforward even by itself (just install Python and something something).
