# [texhax] Is it possible to place picture on the left side on every pages while table on the right side continues

There is an even uglier solution, maybe even simpler as well:

\addtocounter{page}{1} at the bottom of the longtable
(or in some cell that surely is on the second table page),
put the picture into a separate file with appropriate
\setcounter{page}{...}, and put the picture print-out
between the pages of the other print-out.

If I remember correctly, someone has told me that
he uses fancyhdr to manipulate page numbers
more generally in order to get a parallel.sty-like
translation, one language on the left pages, the
other on the right pages.

Cheers,
Uwe.
