I would like to insert huge listings generated in PDF; they have many table and paragraph erratic formats, so translating them to DOC or ODT or copy-pasting doesn't works 100% right. Moreover, I would like to make minimum processing on them, due to it's continuous changing.

Inserting them in a master-document as external-references would be perfect for me; as well as Writer were able to recognize and print the pages or the PDF, and make a right count of the corresponding page jumps, I don't have the need to see them in the WYSIWYG writer environ nor edit the PDF listings.

Nowadays, with small documents, we convert them to SVG and import every page as a graphic, but it's a mess and implies a lot of manual work... :~(

einpoklum, sorry for the delay; I haven't seen yout answer... Nowadays, we insert manual page jumps, ajusting manually page numbre incrementing to agree with number of PDF pages inserted... which usually ends with miinumbered documents!! :-( As said, with small PDF listings, we convert each page in a SVG image, and insert them as graphics in the writer document (which, in the other hand, is nice, as allows us to keep control of page heading, orientation, numbering...).

excuses again, I forgot to explain that the goal of all that work is to obtain a (huge) PDF document with all writer and PDF listings content perfectly mixed...
