# I'd like to put a full pdf page in my document, but it doesn't work!

i've got an issue. I'm writing a LaTeX document, i would like to make a page of my final document as a pdf file (that is a text). I searched on this site but no one of the existing topic helped me.

I tried to use \input, \include, and \includegrapics{file.pdf} but it doesn't work.

If i use the latest command (\includegraphics) it looks like:

So the image respect my margins and my page style.

How can I solve this??

Thanks

Update with the code:

   \documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{vmargin}
\setmarginsrb{2 cm}{2.5 cm}{2 cm}{2.5 cm}{1 cm}{1.5 cm}{1 cm}{1.5 cm}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}
\cfoot{\thepage}
\begin{document}
\input{Lab3/Lab3}
\newpage
\includegraphics{Lab4/traccia4.pdf}
\newpage
\input{Lab4/Lab4}
\end{document}


I'm working with \input.

• Hi, did you have look at this topic : tex.stackexchange.com/questions/105589/… ? It seems that the package pdfpages could solve your problem. See more over pdfpages on CTAN : ctan.org/pkg/pdfpages – Piroooh Nov 8 '18 at 12:30
• Hi @Sebastiano Thanks for your kind welcome. I edited my question. – Marco Ferrari Nov 8 '18 at 13:04
• Hi @Piroooh i had a look at that topic, i will try again, but i though that there is a faster way to do it. – Marco Ferrari Nov 8 '18 at 13:06
• @MarcoFerrari, \input and \include bascally insert a tex file into another one so this is not what you need. You should use pdfpages for your needs – BambOo Nov 8 '18 at 13:14

You want to include a PDF file who is not a .tex file. The two commands \input and \include just put a .tex file at the position of the command. Really convenient to shorten a .tex project and separate parts but useless to include pdf.

\includegraphics[]{} is for picture. PDF file can act like a picture but the command will respect your previous geometry option. As if you put a normal picture.

What you are looking for is to include a PDF as a part of your PDF file. The package pdfpages can help you.

You do not have to include ifthen package. Try this following code :

   \documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{vmargin}
\setmarginsrb{2 cm}{2.5 cm}{2 cm}{2.5 cm}{1 cm}{1.5 cm}{1 cm}{1.5 cm}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}
\cfoot{\thepage}
\begin{document}
\input{Lab3/Lab3}
\newpage
\includepdf[pages=-, offset=50 -75]{Lab4/traccia4.pdf}
\newpage
\input{Lab4/Lab4}
\end{document}


And change the offset option as you want. First value sets an horizontal space and second one a vertical space.

As @Piroooh suggests i tried the answer to that topic with :

   \usepackage{ifthen}
\setboolean{@twoside}{false}
\includepdf[pages=1, offset=75 -75]{Lab4/traccia4.pdf}


And it works, but it's not the same page as the pdf file, it is good, but a little different.

• Look at the pdfpages package – JPi Nov 8 '18 at 13:23
