Embedding a PDF file into a Word document can sometimes be a challenge, especially if the document needs to be shared across various devices and systems. This article presents a solution for embedding a PDF file into a Word document without relying on the default PDF application of the current device, ensuring that the embedded content can be viewed regardless of the system's PDF viewer.
1. Open the Word document and click the "Insert" tab.
2. In the "Insert" tab, locate and click the "Object" button, which is usually on the right side of the tab.
3. In the pop-up "Object" dialog box, select the "Create New" tab.
4. In the "Object Type" list, find and select "Package". This option allows you to embed a file into the Word document as a separate object, without depending on the current system's PDF viewer.
5. After selecting "Package", click the "OK" button. This will insert an empty package object into the Word document.
6. Double-click the newly inserted empty package object. This will open the "Package Content" dialog box.
7. In the "Package Content" dialog box, click the "Add File" button. Then, browse to the PDF file you want to embed. Select the file and click "Open".
8. You can now see the added PDF file in the "Package Content" dialog box. If needed, you can add other files as well. Once finished, click the "OK" button.
9. In the Word document, you should now see the embedded PDF file as a package object. You can adjust its size and position to better fit the document layout.
10. Finally, save your Word document. You have now successfully embedded a PDF file into a Word document without relying on the default PDF application of the current device.
Using the Insert Object Package method, you can efficiently embed PDF files into Word documents without depending on the current system's PDF viewer. This approach ensures that the embedded content can be viewed consistently across various devices and systems, making it easier to share and collaborate on documents containing embedded PDFs.
