Need help?

Postby MSnhung11 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 3:47 am

I'm writing a thesis and need to embed some publications somewhere in the middle. I have already learned that this can be done with the pdfpages package, but this appears to only work with pdflatex. I'm using the texify, dvips and ps2pdf commands from MiKTeX 2.7 from the WinEdt interface, because otherwise the images in the thesis won't work.

So my question is: Given that I can't use pdflatex, how can I embed a PDF document in my thesis?

welcome to the forum!

You could use pdfpages to create another document: it is only including your own document pages and the other PDF pages in the desired order. Disadvantage: hyperlinks can get lost, if you used them. But it's an easy way.

Or, make standalone documents for the images (document class standalone) and use ps2pdf to make them PDF images. Then you can use pdfLaTeX for your document, and pdfpages.
