Hi,

 

Is there any way to embed a PowerPoint/word/excel into a pdf, like you can with a pdf using the Add link function?

Basically, I have an appendix with a table of items 1-17 each being a different file, pdfs, excel, ppt and doc etc.

 

Thanks

Yes, you can use the attachment annotation tool to embed almost any type of file into a PDF file. Click on the annotation and the file will be opened up.

 

Obviously, for security purposes, executable files (and some other similar file types) are not permitted .

Hi Dov,

 

Thanks for the reply. I tried that but it doesn't work exactly how I need it to. I'll keep looking.

If you are looking for a way of “placing” the content from those foreign formats within the PDF page visually without conversion to PDF, sorry, that is not possible.
