# Include PDF on the same page

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} – Dolphin Jan 28 '15 at 14:30
• serval pages... tried it with pagecommand to add subsection but then the headline of the latex-document is colliding with the pdfs headline... – regetskcob Jan 28 '15 at 14:33

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.

``````\usepackage{graphicx}
\subsection{Kopie des Projektantrages}
\includegraphics{antrag.pdf}
``````

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. – regetskcob Jan 28 '15 at 14:34
• @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? – Manuel Weinkauf Jan 28 '15 at 14:39
• Solved this :-) Look @ my answer :) – regetskcob Jan 28 '15 at 14:47

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}
\includegraphics[height=0.8\textheight]{\string"FILENAME".pdf}
