Insert PDF into Word File

Sometimes we may require inserting a PDF into Word document. For example, you have one chart or graph in PDF file that you want to insert into a report you are writing in MS Word as a static image, or you want to insert an entire PDF file into a Word document as a linked object.

There are multiple ways to insert a PDF file into MS Word. You can insert it as an embedded object, or you can insert it as a clickable object. Besides, it has another option to insert only text from PDF. Let's see one by one.

Insert a PDF into Word as an Embedded Object

When you insert a PDF file in a Word document, the Word document only shows the first page of your PDF file. Since after insertion, an embedded object becomes content of the document, there will be no connection to the source file. Any future modification to the original file will not be reflected in the Word document. You can change the position, size, color, or attach a border.

  • Open MS Word. Now place the cursor in the document where you would like to insert the PDF.
  • Now go to the Insert tab from the top of Word.
