MS Word provides an abundance of features for dealing with content. One of these fantastic features is proficiency in inserting a PDF file into Word. If you don’t know how to insert a PDF into Word, don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered. This article will provide a step-by-step guide on how to insert a PDF into Microsoft Word. Here’s how.

How to Insert PDF as an Object

By inserting a PDF into Microsoft Word as an object, the PDF practically becomes a part of the document, which means any modifications made to the source PDF file will not reflect in the embedded file in the Word document until it is linked to the source file.
  • Open the Word document.
  • Select the “Insert” tab.

To link directly to the source file or display it as an icon, however, Linking directly to the source file is a decent idea if you want to allow the inserted PDF file to reflect new changes made to the source file. All you have to do is enable this option if that’s your objective.
Meanwhile, Showing the PDF as an icon is only good when you don’t want to take up too much space on the page. You have to enable one of these options above. If not, the PDF will display its full content on the doc and will not reflect any new changes made to the source file.
  • Select “OK.”
