Sorry, ignore that. I got it the wrong way round.

Hmm. My first comment might still be acceptable, Your title says one way, but the question text says another.

A PDF file inside a Word document does at least do away with one of the files.

> Insert tab, Text group, Object dropdown, Create from File tab on the Object dialog; then browse to your pdf file

Graham, when I try this in Word 2016, it inserts an Acrobat icon instead of the actual PDF file, even if "Link to file" and "Display as icon" are un-ticked:

Word2016 insert object
PDF shows as icon
The icon is a link to the file, as double-clicking on it brings up the PDF in Acrobat, which is nice, but is there any way to embed the file in Word (without converting it to Word) so that the PDF is visible in the Word doc and not simply an icon/link? Thanks, Joe
