How to insert a pdf file

Post by nils-olof » Sat Oct 05, 2019 3:02 pm

Hi!

In version 6 of PDFX-Change I could insert a complete pdf page on to a document. Simply by "Insert image" and then choose the pdf I wanted to put on to my document. And the size was preserved.
In version 8 this does not work. If I do the very same procedure I will only insert all layers and I lose the size of the imported pdf.
Is there another way to do the task?

Regards
Nils-Olof

Three options are available to you as I see it:
  • Take a screenshot of a page and paste it into your doc
  • Open a page of interest, convert it to image and insert into your doc
  • Insert a page of interest into your doc and convert the result to image

Hi!

I don't want my page of intrest to be an image. I want it to remain as an editable pdf as an layer on my main pdf.

Why would you not then Insert Pages (Ctrl+Shift+I)?

Hi guys,

Levs correct here - It seems that Insert Pages (Organize Tab) is what you need.

Thanks,

Hi!

I will try to explain better. Sometimes it's hard to explain in words. :-)
Suppose I have a single page, empty document in A3 size.
I also have an A4 document, single page, with text and image.
Now I want to copy that A4 pdf and put it on to the A3 pdf.
And right now I found the solution. It was very simple. :D
I have looking for much more complicated ways to solve my problem.
The solution was just to copy all layers on the A4 and paste on the A3.
Don't tell anyone that I missed this. :mrgreen:

Thank you all for trying to help me. / Nils-Olof

It would be much cleaner if you just resized the A4 page to A3 and checked Scale page content according new page size near the bottom.
