How to keep embedded PDF's in an MS Word 2010 document during export to PDF with PDFmaker

Aug 30, 2013 12:44 AM



I am preparing in MS Word 2010 a Software Manual with embedded PDF's

When I double click in MS Word on the inserted PDF, Acrobat opens the embedded PDF (these are A0 CAD Drawings).


I want this functionality also after I have converted the MS Word file to a PDF with the PDFMaker add-in (Acrobat X Pro)


Is this possible?

    No. PDF files cannot be embedded within the pages of other PDF files.


    What you could do is attach the other files after the PDF has been created, then manually link to those attachments in Acrobat.

    You should have just done links in the WORD file and not embedded files. I am not sure, but portfolios might allow linking and that would keep the files together.

    Yes you can link within Portfolios (as they're just attachments) but you cannot create a Portfolio from Word, and it doesn't have a primary document.
