I would like to append the several-pages .pdf directly after the section-heading.

\subsection{Kopie des Projektantrages}
\includepdf[pages=-, fitpaper=true]{\antrag} // my PDF file-command

... but it's inserting the pdf on a new page...

Do you know what i try to achive? Hope someone can help me.

Second Try:

    \includepdf[pages=1,pagecommand=\subsection{Kopie des Projektantrages}, fitpaper=true]{\antrag}
\includepdf[pages=2-,pagecommand={}, fitpaper=true]{\antrag}

Now the Headlines of the latex document and the pdf are colliding...

    Hi. Is this a page or several pages? If it is only a page you can include it with \includegraphics[]{Something.pdf}

This solves the problem :-)

\includepdf[pages=1,pagecommand={\subsection{Kopie des Projektantrages} \thispagestyle{empty}}, fitpaper=true]{\antrag}
\includepdf[pages=2-,pagecommand={\thispagestyle{empty}}, fitpaper=true]{\antrag}

\inlcludepdf always inserts the content on separate pages, because it inserts the pdf-document into your document. If you want the pdf to appear on a page within your document you have to use \includegraphics, which works perfectly fine with pdf files as images in pdflatex.

\subsection{Kopie des Projektantrages}

Edit: In regard to Dolphins comment: Yes, I think that only works when the pdf file has only one page.

  • this don't help with several pages.

  • @DanielBocksteger I see, but I think what you want to achieve is not so easy then. As I understand it you want to include a pdf of your application in another document. Have you considered not to insert a header in the document but only in your document toc (and maybe pdf-toc) by manually setting an anchor to the first page of the pdf? Jan 28 '15 at 14:39
  • Solved this :-) Look @ my answer :)

I had the same issue and tried various suggestions out there include this: https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/176188/104699. It is either that they do not work as they claim or are too complicated to follow (e.g. the link above). If you are a beginner or use Lyx because you love the GUI, you know how frustrating it is to spend time hacking with tex code. Here is a very simple solution that I found:

  1. Include the first page as a graphic using INSERT>GRAPHICS
  2. include the rest of the pages as pdf via INSERT>FILE>EXTERNALMATERIAL

    \section{NAME OF SECTION}
    \includepdf[pagecommand={\thispagestyle{plain}}, pages={2-last},scale=0.8]{LINKTOFILE}

That simple.
