# how to print the heading from my appendix on the first page of an inserted pdf file

I have an appendix in my document but it only consists of a large pdf file. When I do it in the following way, I get my title from the Appendix at the end of the previous page or on a new page, but not on the first page of the real appendix.

\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\bibliography{mybib}

\cleardoublepage

\begin{appendices}
\chapter{Appendix A}
\label{ApA}
\includepdf[pages={1}]{EPVDP.pdf}
\includepdf[pages={2-}]{EPVDP.pdf}
\end{appendices}


The thing is: I want to crop the first page of the pdf, in order to fit the title and the chapter title right above the 'first page'. Is this possible?

I think I found a solution, but it is only possible when your first page is not a full text page. Saving the first page of the pdf as a figure and adding it in solves the problem.

\onecolumn

\begin{appendices}
\chapter{Appendix A}
\label{ApA}
\begin{figure}[ht!]
\centering
\centerline{\epsfig{figure=firstpage.jpg,width=\textwidth,height=22cm}}
\end{figure}
\includepdf[pages={2-}]{EPVDP.pdf}
\end{appendices}
