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.

Your best bet would be to convert your newsletter to a PDF
Then, insert the form into the PDF using PDF authoring software
like Adobe Acrobat. That's what I would do.

This will not work. First I use Linux, Second I cannot afford
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
writer. I know I save it as an image and insert it but then
users will not beable to use it.

Thanks for any ideas.

Since I'm using openSUSE I will check repos for packages like you 
mentioned. I have tried pdfedit but it did not work, probably me, but I 
needed to get my bulletin out so I created in libroffice, then I save 
the whole bulletin as a pdf. Worked fine. 

Thanks for all the inputs.
