Merging PDFs without losing Layers (PDF Viewer)

Question asked by Ana.Villaran@atkinsglobal.com on Dec 5, 2019

Hi all,

 

Does anybody know how to merge two PDFs using Python while maintaning layers as shown on the attached picture?

 

I am using arcpy for ArcGIS Pro to export an 'Overview' PDF and a 'Detailed Location' PDF.

 

Both PDFs contain the layers once they're opened on PDF viewer. However, when I merge both PDF 'lots' within a single 'Map Book' PDF using 'arcpy.PDFDocumentCreate' and '<pdfDoc>.appendPages', those layers are lost.

 

I have also tried PdfFileMerger within PyPDF2 Library without success,

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks, Ana
