Hi Chad,
May I know if you have any update on this?


Is this apage that will be appended a PDF as well? Will the source file always be a PDF also? Do you know the number of pages of the source PDF also?


Hi Chad,
The last page would most likely be a word document. I can convert the word document to PDF file, if you preferred.


The format shouldn't matter, a Word Document will need to be converted first. Will you know the length of the source PDF being appended? I ask because there is no way to tell the link to goto the last page, a numeric value needs to be supplied.



Give this a try, much work still needs to be done but I can confirm the concepts are in place.

<a href="" title=""></a>

It works with portrait document currently. Do you think you will have landspace orientated documents?

The document does not have to be on the same server, just web accessible. If you do not have a document online to play with you can use the following as a sample:

Filename In: testGerman.pdf
File Location: <a href="" title=""></a>
Output Filename: Output.pdf
Conversion Type: Add Copyright Link
Number of pages(for Add Copyright Link only): 8



Hi Chad,
How are you? I have a question about rendering the linked "Copyright and Licensing" text/logo in the top right corner of pdf file. We've talked about if the volume is low, it could be done manually, otherwise, pdf server would be a good option. I've tried this link <a href="" title=""></a>
1. may I know if this link allowed users to edit pdf files (i.e: add the "Copyright and Licensing" text/logo, insert the licensing page at the end of the file, and linked "Copyright and Licensing" text/logo to the last page)? Please see the attached pdf file as an example.
2. may I know if all 3 process (add the "Copyright and Licensing" text/logo, insert the licensing page at the end of the file, and linked "Copyright and Licensing" text/logo to the last page) can be automated through the pdf server?

Please advice.


The "Copyright and Licensing" text/logo that appears on the front page cannot be uploaded per article. A template needs to be used. There can be multiple templates defined and you can choose to use different templates if you wish, but you cannot provide new information each time.

As far as inserting of the actual copyright pages at the end of the document those pages can be supplied each time, as a separate document. This is essentially merging the two documents(article and copyright) together.

Yes all of this can be automated. To automate you would need to provide the following each time.

1) Which copyright/text text/logo template you wish to use.
2) The article, format not specific. It can be a Word doc or a PDF or anything really
3) Number of pages of the document. This is so the copyright/logo link on the front page knows where to link to in the document.
4) Copyright document for the end of the document. Format again is not specific, it can be a Word doc, PDF or anything really.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
