Valued Team and members here,

having not seen on how to do yet: Is it possible to insert/import another file, say pdf, into a odg-file, draw-file, or any way to merge two files (pdf in my persons case) into a odg-file, attach another pdf at the end of it?

Hints and tips in regard of it appreciated.

It's very simple -if your computer has enough memory and resources:

Open each of the PDFs in LibreOffice Draw (two separate instances). In the document you want to add, select one page in the vertical page-banner on the left, then Ctrl+A selects all the pages; either Ctrl+C or right-click --> Copy will copy all the pages.

Then in the document you want to add to; scroll to the desired page where you want to insert the copied pages (e.g. the last page), select that page in the vertical page-banner, right-click --> Paste will add all the copied pages after the selected one.

This normally works for me, take care that pace sizes of both documents are compatible or the same. Occasionally Draw takes very long time to open PDFs and sometimes it stalls; this is normally due to heavy graphics, complex internal links or just to which software the PDF was created in.

Hope this helps,

Sadhu (Appreciation), Mr @sveinki . Having had not much success with ctrl+a before (at least nothing was marked) before, will surely try it (as soon as some memory available again, since just open a pdf).

Works fine in all usual copy and past ways, Sadhu!
