It depends on how integrated the existing PDF is with the FM content. You can import individual pages from an existing PDF into FrameMaker pages. However, FrameMaker is not able to pick up any of the content of the imported PDF pages for generated files and bookmarks, etc. Like most everything else, some of this can be fixed with FrameScript. For example, with stock FrameMaker, you can only import a single PDF page at a time from a multi-page PDF. With FrameScript, you could import the entire PDF with one command. Also, with a script, you could import incorporate headings and page numbers from the PDF and "hide" them in your FrameMaker document so you can get TOCs, bookmarks, cross-references, etc. to work with the imported PDF content. If you are interested in exploring what is possible, please contact me off-list.

At least for the foreseeable future, it won't be possible to incorporate the source content of the existing PDF into FM to be able to generate a single PDF file. Is it possible to incorporate that existing PDF , as is, into the PDF that I'll generate, so that the TOC, page numbering, etc. will all be there for both PDFs? If yes, how? If not, how would I create a link to that PDF in FM that will work from the generated PDF? I think I've done it before, but it's been a long, long time.
