Append to en existing pdf

First off, thanks for this great app. It's very helpful!

Is there an option to append printed pdf to an existing pdf file rather than overwriting the file? I am using another script to do that, but if it is possible to do it while printing it would eliminate the extra step.

(sorry for the typo in the subject, can't change it :)

Thanks

Hi

No, OfficeToPDF doesn't support appending the generated PDF to an existing file. It's unlikely that we'd add the function as we want to focus on just getting the PDF out of Office rather than getting into the internals of PDFs themselves.

Hi

FYI, we've started to integrate a bit more control over the PDF in OfficeToPDF now.

We have a test version attached to https://officetopdf.codeplex.com/workitem/39 which has support for /pdf_append and /pdf_prepend flags. These can be used to add the generated PDF to the end or the start of the destination.

If you still need the append function, give it a go and let us know how it works for you.
