Can someone please help me with this? I suppose I have not received an
answer because there is no minimal example. I thought it would be
straightforward for someone in the forum without seeing an example.

Anyhow I have attached a pdf file (includethis.pdf) and a tex file in
which I am trying to include pages from the pdf file. I want to
increase the left side margin on the pages on which included file is

Thank you in advance.
