I use Linux [Ubuntu 10.04] and there are several free PDF editing packages for Linux. One should do what you want.

You also can print PDF through the CUPS-PDF driver. So any package that prints, like Firefox or Thunderbird, can have its output in a PDF format.

I am positive that there is a PDF-merge package that you can print out PDF from several packages and merge them into one PDF document. I did this myself in 2010 a few times, but I do not remember what the package was called, but it was in the repository.

This will not work. First I use Linux, Second I cannot afford Adobe
Acrobat which to the best of my knowledge does not have a Linux version.
I can create pdf's from LibreOffice and Scribus. I have not had time to
try this in Scribus, it is supposed to import pdf's, but latest update
gives error on trying to open pdf. Need to report bug.

Thanks for your reply anyway.

In order to get bulletin out I just recreated the whole document as a
pdf form in LibreOffice and then save whol bulletin as pdf. Alot of
extra work.

It opens the pdf in draw instead of the select document page in
writer. I know I save it as an image and insert it but then the
users will not beable to use it.

Thanks for any ideas.
