If I use the URL of such a file, e.g. \includepdf{x-devonthink-item://<E012F657AF22354DAC71F70EA0131EA0ACCD6C@EXCHANGE02.hbml.local>} produces an error. But other applications, like BusyCal.app, Mail.app, can handle such links.

Howdy,

I asssume you are using the pdfpages package to get the \includepdf command? Are you sure that the the required argument for \includepdf can be a URL? The definition given in the documentation fro pdfpages gives \includepdf[⟨key=val ⟩]{⟨filename ⟩} so it requires a PATH to a file rather than a URL.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
