# Include 5 pdf pages in one page with a blank page

Just encounter a small problem with Texmaker. I want to add 5 PDF pages in one PDF page with TexMaker. The layout I need is the one below :

I used the code here with Texmaker:

``````\includepdf[nup=2x3, pages={1-5},landscape=TRUE, columnstrict=true]{myfile.pdf}
``````

But I don't know how can I get the layout that I want. I searched on forums and don't find the answer, but if you have a link that I didn't see it's also perfect !

I also have to repeat this operation since I have a pdf file with 45 pages and I want to have a final pdf file with the layout above and 5 pages per page.

• Hi, welcome to TeX.SE! I don't think `pdfpages` can do that. I didn't see an option for such special layout in its manual. I would go with placing the pages separatly using TikZ. – Martin Scharrer Dec 19 '17 at 9:22
• Thanks for the welcome and the answer. I will have a look at TikZ then ! :) – Nico Dec 19 '17 at 9:24
• I'm sure someone will post some full answer for this here soon. Just for clarification: Do you need this as part of a normal document, like in the appendix, or does your final PDF only consists of the included PDFs? Also, are you using A4 or Letter pagesize? – Martin Scharrer Dec 19 '17 at 9:37
• Thx for the answer Martin ! I only need for a final PDF only consists of the included PDFs. I'm using A4 landscape for now :) – Nico Dec 19 '17 at 9:44
• With `pgfpages` you can create your own layout, see e.g. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/151645/… – user36296 Dec 19 '17 at 10:59
