    Description

    Since the creation of FileMaker we've been begging for a feature that allows us to combine more than one report into a single document. Printing to PDF, then combining the files manually works if you Have Acrobat Professional, but that's expensive and time consuming. FileMaker Pro 8 provided the Save as PDF function for the Windows users. OS X users have had the Adobe print libraries included with the OS for years. This new feature was one step closer, but not quite there yet. Finally, in FileMaker Pro 9 we can now combine more than one report together into a single document. That also includes pages with different page setups (i.e. sizes, vertical, horizontal, etc.)
