[Solved] Combining Writer and Drawing files

Postby rabogardus » Sat Feb 06, 2016 1:34 am

Is it possible to combine a multipage drawing file (.odg) with a multipage writer file (.odt) which can then be saved as a PDF? When I tried inserting a drawing file as an OLE object it only inserts the last page and it is cut in half.

Yes,it is possible. For example a virtual (pdf) printer software:

Or you can combine the stand alone (exported) pdf files with a pdf manipulator software (like the PDFtk toolkit:

Try to insert the graphical contents of the pages instead of the whole file.
