How to insert pdf through dvipdfm

Postby KristyStevens » Tue Jun 25, 2019 5:48 am

I am working with dvipdfm and I need to insert another pdf file to my document. I am able to do that with pdftex (via package pdfpages and includepdf command) but I was unsuccessful with dvipdfm. Could you advise me?
Thank you a lot.

Why do you want to stay with the old rout via dvi?

Directly producing a pdf file is the recommended way.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

If you want to use dvipdfm(x) you have to use graphics/graphicx-package with option dvipdf and it is documented, that this does not support including of PDF files but only EPS, JPEG, BMP, MSP. So you have to convert the PDF files to EPS files (for multi-page PDFs this would result in one EPS file per page). So it is much more comfortable not to use latex + dvipdfm(x) but pdflatex, xelatex or lualatex to generate the PDFs directly instead.
