I have several pages to scan and then email (job application).  My instructions from the employerer are to "Gather all pages and Stack into one PDF document" then email.
How do I do this?
Thanks

Hellifiknow,

If you have a PDF printer driver (one may have come with the scanner), you can scan to PDF. If you do not have one, I suggest PrimoPDF (http://www.primopdf.com/). Download and install this, and then you can turn each page you scan into an individual PDF by printing it to that "printer". Make sure you don't over-write individual pages (in other words, give them each a unique name).

Once you have all the pages, you can use the Access PDF toolkit (http://www.accesspdf.com/pdftk/) to join the pages. Download and place in the same directory as your PDFs, and then join the PDFs by going to DOS window and giving a  command like the following:
"pdftk 1.pdf 2.pdf 3.pdf cat output 123.pdf

Cheers,
