    Hey, sorry, no drinks coming your way, but good karma for sure and a heartfelt thanks. This trick totally works and is so easy. I had used the Mac print-to-pdf feature (which I notice you also profiled), but it was splitting the document into sections. With this trick with Preview, presto, back to one. Thanks a ton!
