Making affidavits the PDF way on Mac OS X

There are still a lot of lawyers who use the combination of a rubber annexure stamp, and manual handwritten numbering, to finalise affidavits.

But there is an easier way.

I write the affidavit using Word. Any annexures get scanned in using the chambers photocopier.

On OSX, I use Stamp and Number Pro 2 to handle numbering of the PDF, you can select the positioning, and the start and finish number.

Then, the rest (annexure stamps) gets done with Preview, by just inserting a text box.

Unfortunately, you then need to print the whole lot before you can have it sworn/affirmed, so if you want to have it back in the computer again, you need to scan one more time.
