There are a few replies to a similar question, but my problem is that it is my thesis and I cannot change the header and footer.

It is also to be in annex to the thesis, landscape mode and it should be to include high resolution pages.

Is it possible to do that?

Kind regards,

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us (and also you) and add a minimal working example (MWE), that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document}. – Bobyandbob Jul 21 '17 at 4:48

    I assume that the A3-sized pages are created in a separate LaTeX program. Have you looked into the pdfpages package? It lets users insert externally-created single-page or multi-page pdf documents at various places in a LaTeX document. – Mico Jul 21 '17 at 5:27
  • @MadyYuvi How should geometry help to include a PDF? – TeXnician Jul 21 '17 at 5:49
  • @TeXnician I guess @MadyYuvi tries to put a double page of A3 size in an A4 document in the same TeX-document, that's why he/she/it/Apache helicopter recommends the geometry package. – Skillmon Jul 21 '17 at 7:21
  • I thought that to change the A3 layout to A4 layout, that's why I suggested that, now I deleted my comment... – MadyYuvi Jul 21 '17 at 10:17

Create the main document (in A4) and add an empty page where the A3 page should be (\newpage). Then create another .tex file that uses pdfpages to include all the pages of the A4 document up to the empty page, then include only the A3 page from the second document, and finally the rest of the main document. This way page numbers are correct and in the PDF there will be all pages but the one in A4.

  • Hello, thank you. The main document is in fact already produced in A4 format. When you say second document, do you mean an A3 formated .tex document? Nevertheless I will take a look at pdfpages package. – Focha Jul 22 '17 at 19:57
  • can I import the PDF file directly, instead of creating a new file? The things I am trying to import are maps, in A3 and A1 format. I can produce those in PDF externally. The only concern I have, is that it has to maintain the page formatting, both header, footer and page number. Thank you. – Focha Jul 24 '17 at 3:59
  • Yes, instead of a master document you can import it directly into the main document. – norbert Jul 24 '17 at 4:39
  • This worked, thank you very much. Although I lost the header and footer. But there in no need for that. Your solution worked. – Focha Jul 25 '17 at 4:01
