I'm having a huge *.tex-file which is based on the KOMA-class. I'm using a design-template from my university to modify the appearance. The design-template adds colored bars on top of each page and lines at the botttom.

This causes trouble when I want to add one single page using \includepdf. I want this page to be exactly as it is. Sadly even on this page I get colored bars behind the included pdf at the top of the page.

I also tried to generate my big pdf first and then merge it afterwards with the single page:

\includepdf[pages={1-2}]{Thesis}
\includepdf[pages=-]{SinglePage}
\includepdf[pages={3-last}]{Thesis}

Unfortunately this breaks the hyperrefs.

So I am interessted if there is any way to simply include one pdf-page in a document without the design-templates messing with it.

It seems I can't even add a completely empty page. Even using

\newpage
\thispagestyle{empty}
\mbox{}

still results in an empty page but with a colored bar at the top.

Any help is very much appreciated.

  • Without knowing anything about the template you are using, we cannot really help much

  • Well, it's from my university and I know it uses the KOMA-scrreprt-class. It contains out of some *.cls and *.sty files and some extra fonts. But I suspect this might not be really helpful. Commented Oct 29, 2014 at 10:23

    No, a link would be helpful (though, I'm not at a computer right now). I can think of several ways those lines could be added. But then again, if that is what the university demands, what gives you the right to counter that demand

  • Addition: I know, a lot of these demands may be rubbish. But if they provided you with a genuine design, think hard before you change it.

  • The template can be downloaded at exp1.fkp.physik.tu-darmstadt.de/tuddesign/latex/latex-tuddesign/… Unfortunately the site is in german. Changing the template for one page is ok as my supervisor asked me to. The page to include already has the colored bars at a slightly different position. Commented Oct 29, 2014 at 10:41

Package pdfpages provides the option pagecommand which is useful in cases like yours.

\includepdf[pages=-,pagecommand={\thispagestyle{realempty}}]{<pdfFileName>}
