Append PDF

Post by hannesd » Wed Feb 13, 2019 9:38 am

Hi!

I would like to have an option to append an existing PDF file with the content I want to save.

In the save file dialog I select an existing file and click save. A confirmation dialog pops up, where I can choose if I want to overwrite the existing file or not. Here I would add a button "append".

Thanks
Hannes

Thanks for the answer, but your suggestion does not work if I have an existing PDF file, which I want to extend.

It might be helpful if you could clarify what you are requesting:

The PDF file format supports attaching a file to a PDF, which could be considered to be 'appended' to the file; I've never used that option myself, but I believe LibreOffice provides the option when a PDF is saved. I believe for example an image file or a Word file can probably be attached to the PDF, and would become part of the file. If you mean 'appending' in that sense, LibreOffice Writer or Draw might provide a solution.

But I suspect that you are requesting an option be added to add an image (or maybe multiple images) to an existing image PDF, to create a multi-page image PDF?
