Is it possible to create a macro that does this? I use Libre Office but you have to do it individually one file at a time.
I don't have Word, so I'm trying to find a way to automate the process. I'd like to select all the files, hit a key and have it copy the contents of the files to a new document and keep the formating but I'm new to Keyboard Maestro and I don't see the correct options to put that marco together.
Any suggestions on where to start?
Paste this into the Terminal and hit Return.
The is the only macOS-native function (that I know of) that can do what you want.
It's imperfect. If your documents are too complex the formatting might get distorted.
Keyboard Maestro runs shell scripts via Execute a Shell Script actions.
Here's an untested idea using this as a guide:
how to merge several documents into one -- LibreOffice.org
create a master document
Push icon Insert->File
Select your documents and select Open
You might be able to use KM Select or Show a Menu Item action along with a For Each Action Using Finders Selection collection.
If you have questions or need more help, just ask.
Ok, thank you I will check that out.
Ok, that may work, I will give it a shot. Thanks.
