comment PDF Merge of pdfs with differing page size
I combine two pdf files into one using the same LaTEX code as in your post but without fitpaper. The page sizes for the two input pdf files are different. So what is "the page size of the including document"?

comment PDF Merge of pdfs with differing page size
My question was: the page sizes of 1.pdf and 2.pdf (viewed under 100% zoom level) are different, but the pdflatex generated combined pdf file will have the same page size for all pages.

comment PDF Merge of pdfs with differing page size
A different question: Can pdfpages or some LaTeX package remove OCRed text from a pdf file? See unix.stackexchange.com/questions/171940/…

comment PDF Merge of pdfs with differing page size
+1 Thanks. If I call \includepdf{pages=1-last]{1.pdf} and \includepdf{pages=1-last]{2.pdf}, what is the page size of the output pdf file? Is it the same as the page size of 1.pdf or of 2.pdf?

comment Right angle symbols at corners of each page
I think the original pdfcrop removes more margins than specified. Not sure why.

comment Right angle symbols at corners of each page
My measurements of those right angle symbols show that I have to trim according to '-36 -59 -49 -35' (L,T, R, B). How did you get your measurements "54 36 54 36"? Or how shall I get the correct measurement for trimming?

comment What are the possible dimensions / sizes / units LaTeX understands?
Wikipdia says 1 point = 1/72 inch, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_%28typography%29. What is the difference and relation between point and big point?

comment Right angle symbols at corners of each page
(1) Does pdfcrop have bugs? Or did I use it incorrectly? (2) Your measure is "54 36 54 36", and mine is '-36 -59 -49 -35'. Not taking into account the sign, they are different, are they?

comment Right angle symbols at corners of each page
Thanks. My measurement show that I need to change -36 -59 -49 -35 from left, top, right and bottom margins. I run my pdfcrop command pdfcrop --margins '-36 -59 -49 -35' tmp.pdf tmpo3.pdf, where my pdfcrop is PDFCROP 1.20, 2009/10/06 - Copyright (c) 2002-2009 by Heiko Oberdiek, the result doesn't seem right.

comment pdfcrop and --bbox command line option
Wikipdia says 1 point = 1/72 inch, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_%28typography%29. What is the difference and relation between point and big point? Does "pt" in TeX not mean "point" in Wikipedia?

@DG' When using pdfcrop, how can I determine the measurements of the margins to crop away?

Why having them, if we need to crop them away?

comment Using LaTeX to solve math problems in LaTeX more efficiently than with only paper
@Verron: How does some math software "make things even more complicated"? I would like to make things more convenient and productive.

comment What are texlive-fonts-extra and texlive-latex-extra-doc used for?
Thanks. Are all packages with doc in their names not necessary? When I need to figure out how to use Latex, I always consult the internet, so can I safely remove all "doc" packages?
