    Insert files (2002)

    I am sure this must have been asked before, but my search did not find the answer.

    We want to insert several documents with different headers/footers and margins into one document to have our client review. Normally we create PDF files and insert into one Adobe file.

    Here are the steps that we are trying:

    1. Open the first document
    2. Insert, Break, Next Page at the point where the next document will be inserted. (if needed, another section break is inserted if the document continues after the insertion point)
    3. On the blank page, Page Setup is checked to be sure the margins match the document to be inserted and Different First Page is checked if the document to be inserted has that setup.
    4. In the blank page header, Same as Previous is unselected (if selected)
    5. Finally the file is Inserted

    The problem is that the inserted document has a header starting on the second page. Of course, when the file is inserted into the original document, the header doesn't come with the inserted file.

    Is there a trick to inserting files with different page layouts into other documents?

    How do you insert the documents? It's probably best to do it like this:
    - Insert a next page section break.
    - Open the other document.
    - Select all (Ctrl+A).
    - Copy to the clipboard (Ctrl+C)
    - Switch back to the new document (Ctrl+F6)
    - Paste (Ctrl+V)

    Thanks, Hans.

    This was closer, but I still needed to go into the header of the inserted file to uncheck Same as Previous, and delete the text in that header.

    I'll try to remember this for the next time. Thanks.

    OK, so you'd better uncheck 'Same as Previous' before inserting the file.
