Renaming icon attached in PowerPoint

Dear experts,

When I insert a PDF file into my PowerPoint slide using Insert Object method as an icon, I get a PDF icon with the file name 'Adobe Acrobat Document'

How do I change the 'Adobe Acrobat Document' file name?

Hi

This should help

double-click on the object (textbox, shape, etc.) to select the object and in the Drawing Tools | Format tab, click on Selection Pane in the Arrange group. From there, you'll see names of objects - you can just double click (or press F2) on any name and rename it. By deselecting it, it becomes renamed. You can also get to this from the Home tab -> Drawing group -> Arrange drop-down -> Selection pane. (or, if you want a crazy keyboard shortcut to launch the Selection Pane, type ALT, H, S, L, and then P).

Hi Scott,

This does not change what is visible on the slide.
It still shows  'Adobe Acrobat Document' underneath the object icon.

When you choose Insert | Object and then Create from File, you click the button to display an icon. Beneath it there's an option to change icon.

Change the caption there. (Used Illo in the image because I actually had to uninstall Acrobat today so I can't show it! But you get the idea....)
