I'm trying to include some pdf documents at the end of my document using pdfpages. My document has a binding offset as defined using the geometry package but pdfpages doesn't recognise it. I've looked through the package options for pdfpages but can't see anything.

Did you know that pdfpages provides an offset in the form \includepdf[offset=<offx> <offy>]{<filename>} (see page 3 of the package documentation). Have you tried this? – Werner Sep 23 '11 at 18:48

Not only, as Werner suggests, there's the offset= option, but options to be used throughout can be specified globally via \includepdfset

\includepdfset{offset=0.7cm 0cm}

where instead of 0.7cm there should be the amount of your binding correction. In twoside mode, this refers to a shift towards the outer margin, while in oneside mode it's always a shift to the right.

Insert that command just after loading pdfpages.

Thanks Werner and egreg, between the offset and realising you can use the graphicx scale option, I've managed to get it working nicely. – Darling Sep 24 '11 at 12:50
