I didn't get any response for the problem stated below. If there is no
possible method in the renderx which supports this problem, can you suggest
some PDF text editing tool? We need to add some blank pages and insert some
pages in the generated PDF.

Hi All,

We have the following requirements. We are using renderx for transformation.


Publication will be broken into volumes if the publication exceeds 320

The publication is printed as a series of "signatures" on a web press. A
signature (sig) is 32 pages. The signatures are collected and bound together
to create a volume.

The following rules apply when dividing a publication into volumes:
1. The maximum number of signatures that can be bound together by the
equipment at OSP is 10. Therefore, the maximum number of pages in one
volume of the publication is 320 (10 sigs * 32 pages per sig).

2. The number of signatures per volume must be "balanced". That is, if
a publication requires 26 sigs, the sigs should be split as equally as
possible among the volumes with the first, second, and third volumes
containing 9, 9, and 8 sigs, respectively.

3. The very last signature of a publication may contain 16 pages.

4. A blank page is added to the end of each volume except the last volume.
The blank pages are included in the publication's total page count. A
static calendar should be displayed on the end page. If total pages are 16
then blank pages should be inserted till 31 and 32nd page should be a


Any idea how to handle this pagination logic.
