> Hello community,
> I have the following problem. I need to create a single PDF file where
> each page may have a different size and orientation. Say the first page is
> A4 portrait, the second is A3 landscape and so on. Can TeX (either LaTeX or
> ConTeXt or plain TeX) help? Each page contains a PDF image of some random
> size that is inserted (e.g. with the pdfpages package in LaTeX).
> I have been looking around for a solution but haven't found one. And using
> geometry and pdfpages is not enough, because you cannot change paper size
> mid-document with geometry. I also tried Create.app, the drawing program.
> And I tried a program call PDF Merge and some others. Neither of these
> work, and most of the merge programs out there maybe merged, but changed
> the nice vector images into pixel images, completely destroying print
> quality.
> So, I am back where I started. Is there some fancy TeX trickery I could
> use to do this?
> Summary:
> - One PDF as result
> - Each page has a different size and orientation
> - Each page contains a PDF vector image that is not to be converted to
