Subject: RE: how to merge PDFs



Thanks for your suggestion on submitting a bug.  I put together the information to recreate the problem as well as the PDF that was in error.  I submitted it just now.

 

I think I will skip the merge and wait to hear back from the bug submission.

 

 

Thanks,

Please provide a test case if you think you found a bug. Most likely there is some oddity in your FO input that causes the problem.

If you want to merge documents and have control over how they are generated you can use initial-page-number to set the page number for the start of a page sequence.

To merge, besides PDFBox you can use pdftk (which itself uses iText).

I looked over the PDFBox option.  Do you believe there is a way to renumber pages in a merged PDF document?

Look into PDFBox, its another Apache project that can do just that. However, you definitely shouldn't be seeing XSL-FO in the output PDF.

Can you post a bug and attach a test sample? Depending on what you're doing, FOP should be able to handle big documents so the merging shouldn't be necessary.

FOP 1.1

We have been using FOP for quite a few years now.  We are really happy with it.  We use it to generate PDF reports.  We seem to be running into an issue where really large reports start to display the XSL-FOP code in the output.

 

Example:

d="submission-4"> <fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-after"> <fo:table> <fs week? If so,

provide details on the conference/workshop/journal, authors, paper

 

I was thinking that maybe I could process each page into its own PDF and then splice the single page PDFs together into a master PDF document. 

 

Has anyone ever done this? 

 

This will prevent the issue from occurring.
