Doc Merge lets you drag Word documents into the window from the Finder. Documents may be dragged to their proper order before merging, or the user can click on one of the two auto-sort options from the toolbar. If a page break is desired in between the merged documents, just a click of the toolbar is required. Finally, clicking on the Merge Docs toolbar button starts the merging process. When done, Doc Merge will even open the new document on the user's behalf.

Another rip-off from Pariahware- unless you don't have Word. Then, I can't speak. Or, have the need (which not many do)- of needing to merge multiple Word documents, multiple times. Here is the instructions on how to merge Word documents in work- from PC World . Simply go to the place in the document where you wish to merge- and, access the File Menu item - Insert Document. However, I imagine that somehow, he gets people to buy this. Perhaps because he offers software for the PC, as well.

There is no File->Insert document on the Mac version of Word. Even if there was, I image one would need to manually perform that File->Insert for each document. It's much easier to drag the documents from the Finder into the Doc Merge window and click a single button.

At least Apple makes someone purchase the app before being able to leave a review... geesh.

I stand by my statement. It is easy to insert a document into word by going to the "Insert" file menu item; and go to the "File" submenu item. I do have Word. Yes, It may be easier to add multiple files to a document using Doc Merge- but, not much so. Not enough to justify a $14.99 price tag. Unless you do so on multiple occasions, each day. At least, in my book. No need to try out Pariahware's Doc Merge to understand this when I have Word and utilize this function.

So we are clear:
- you are not the target market, unlike the book publisher who uses the app on a daily basis.
- you did not download nor try the app
- you would rather repeatedly go to the Insert->File menu for each file
- you felt the need to rate give the app one star anyway

Yes. You are correct on all 3 accounts. My comments were spurred initially by your MacZot promotion- which decidedly is geared towards the novice/mass user- Not Book publishers. I have not downloaded or tried the App because I find it ridiculously easy to add a file to a Word document (which occurs maybe twice a month- if that)- in Word, itself. Finally, I give it one star for your pricing and marketing practices. Perhaps DocMerge works well for a Book publisher who needs to merge Doc Apps many times a day (I can't imagine that- but what do I know)- but I rate the App a one star because for the vast, vast majority of users- it adds little functionality over a free option. You have a propensity to overcharge for apps that do just that. Witness ShooApp (also a MacZot promotion)- that adds a little granularity to that provided by SpritedAway. $15 is a lot of money to some, for software that adds such little over free options. This is my opinion, at least.

Doc Merge does not work properly. Several individual documents with different headers are messed up. Unusable for me. $ 15 spent for nothing.

And surprisingly a support email was never sent. If you did write, I would have told you that through Word automation I do not have access to the headers & footers of a document. If anyone knows better, please contact me so I can make that work.

Funny, absurd price for a one-task app: you can buy all (!) Office for home and students for such a money!

Me too. I can't see the point.

You can do the same thing with Applescript or Automator - both free.

One of the questions that I have seen around the web regarding Doc Merge, is if it is worth the cost.  If you only have two or three documents to merge once in a while, then I would say no.  Doc Merge's audience for those merging many Word documents by hand, frequently.  For example, a business who is paying an employee for hours of their time manually merging documents.  The employer can purchase Doc Merge and have their documents merged into one document in a matter of seconds (or minutes) instead of hours.  For businesses, time is money.  I hope this helps you better understand the purpose of Doc Merge's existance.

Still... $35 for that task?
It's REALLY much my friend, and no one's gonna pay that.

Dev: „For example, a business who is paying an employee for hours of their time manually merging documents.“
Such a company would ask their PC guy to write an Automator action or an Apple script doing the same, fast, comfortable and without a need of another application people have to learn to use...

I'm just curious... what about Doc Merge makes it worth $35? (I'm not slamming it or anything; again, I'm just curious.) Most people working with MS Word .doc files have Word, OpenOffice/NeoOffice, AbiWord, etc. with which to merge them... but even if they don't have any of those programs around, is there a high enough demand for merging that someone's going to spend $35?
