[R] Adding text to existing PDF's created with R

R 4.0.2


Does R have the capability of adding text (e.g., page numbers) to an existing PDF (previously created with R) -- other than adding this text, the PDF should be unchanged (except for a new filename).

The intent is as follows:  
	I have multiple PDFs that I eventually merge into a single PDF, separating each one with a separator page.  
	The content of the separator pages comes from a Word document.
	The task is performed with textreadr, officer, and pdftools.
I can insert page numbers into the separator pages (created as PDF documents).
I join the separator pages and the original PDFs using python's join command.
But I have not been able to figure out how to add page numbers to the existing PDF's.

Any help would be appreciated.
