When it comes to inserting PDFs into your Word documents, you can use two methods. You can insert it as an object, or you can insert it in such a way that allows you to open the PDF in the Word document – enabling you to edit the PDF.
In this article, we’ll show you how to do both step-by-step. Plus, we’ll look at inserting in to Google Docs, for anyone who primarily uses that.
How To Insert A PDF Into Word (Non-Editable Object)
If you don’t need a PDF to be editable, then you can insert a PDF into a Word document as an object.
Begin by selecting ‘insert’ on your Word document. This is located in the menu above the document.
Then, make your way along the bar and click on ‘object’.
Create From File
When you select ‘object’ a pop-up box will appear. Click on ‘create from file’.
Select the ‘browse’ option, and locate your PDF from where it has been saved.
Once located, click ‘insert’, and then press ‘okay’.
Your PDF should now have been inserted into your Word document. However, if any changes are made to the PDF after it has been inserted this way, these changes will not appear in this document.
How To insert PDF In Word Document (Editable)
In order to insert your PDF as an editable document, Word will need to convert your PDF into a Word format, and then it can be edited just like the rest of the document.
Open the file
Start by selecting ‘file’ from the menu bar, and clicking ‘open’.
Navigate to where your PDF is saved on your computer, press ‘okay’.
Your file will be imported, and you will be able to edit it like the rest of the document.
Inserting A PDF In Google Docs
If you don’t have Microsoft Word on your device, you may be using a Google Document to create a Word document.
You can still include PDFs in your Google documents, here’s how.
Once you have logged in to your Google Drive, select ‘new’ and click on ‘file upload.
Select Your PDF File
Navigate and select your PDF file from your computer and click on ‘upload’.
Get The Link
Your file will then appear in ‘My drive’.
Once it does, right-click on it and select the ‘get link’ option.
Copy Link And Copy, Paste
Select ‘copy link’ and copy-paste it to your clipboard before pressing ‘done’.
Open Google Document
Once you have done this, open your Google document, and you can then insert the link.
This method will result in a link to your PDF being displayed in your document. You also get the option of the link or icon being displayed, which will keep your document neat and put together.
If you would like to insert your PDF as an image in your Google document, you will need to convert that PDF to an image first. You can do this using online converters. Once it has been converted to an image, you can save it to your Google Drive, and then insert the image into your document.
Inserting a PDF into Word (or Google Docs) PDFs in your documents is a great way to include variety in your documents, such as by adding images, infographics, etc. You can do this very simply with the steps above, and never wonder about the process again,
