How to automatically add interactive elements in a pdf?

Dear community,


I am working on a project where I would like to let companies select elements that they would like to add in pdf's that are already uploaded on the server.

These elements can be their logo, a new page or an interactive element. I was wondering if this was possible and if it was possible to implement automatically?

For example: Company A would like to add their logo on page 3, 6 and 8 in pdf B.


Thank you for your time and kind regards,

    I am moving your posting at PDF Pack forum to Acrobat forum.

    If you write your own server software you can do whatever you want, but the Acrobat Family won't help - aside from anything else you cannot run Acrobat on a server.


    This sort of thing is usually done with a standard Web interface (HTML5/JS/SWF) that allows the user to design the page graphically, then the coordinate info is passed back to a server-side PDF generation library (in Java/PHP/Perl) that creates the final document. You don't edit the PDF file itself, you build it on demand.
