Attaching PDF/Jpegs to MS Word


User: Skig - 15 September 2011 18:17

I have a 50-page long PDF document that I need to add to my thesis and I just don't know how to do it.

I can attach a single page PDF at at time to word.
I can convert PDF to jpeg but they come out as single pages.
I can attach a single jpeg at a time to word.

But how on earth do you attach many PDF or jpeg pages without going back and forth inserting objects/pictures?

User: ady - 15 September 2011 18:20

you're pretty close to submission, aren't you? Could you not wait 'til you convert your word thesis to a pdf and then merge the two pdfs?
http://foxyutils.com/mergepdf/# - it's what I'm going to do with mine :-)

User: Skig - 15 September 2011 18:26

That's a great idea Ady, thank you, but I need to add the pdf into the document as an object as it's one of my appendices.

And I'm very close!! I need this done by the end of the weekend! Although submission not till mid Oct.

if it wasn't so long (50 pages) I would suggest taking a snapshot of each page [edit, 'take a snapshot'] and pasting them in as I have done that with a few jpegs and pdfs in my thesis but that might not work with the amount of pages you have.

think you need somebody considerably more technical than me! Good luck with it(up)

2nd edit :$ - I have an appendix that's a pdf and my thesis is still in word format. I did take a snapshot of each page (c10) and it worked fine. No doubt there is a much more efficient way of doing it but it worked for me. I have been working on a full draft document for a while now and have had no probs.

Maybe I misunderstood something but why the fact that the pdf is an appendix makes merging the two pdfs impossible? If it should be placed in the middle of the word part, simply cut the word-pdf into two pieces and then merge the three together? Can't really advise on any software, though, unless you're using linux :)

User: Skig - 15 September 2011 19:01

I know what you mean Ady, I've done that on single documents too but this 50 page is only the first to go, I have more still to come!!

Faerie, I'm afraid I don't have Linux. i'm not very technical either but I assumed that, when merging 2 documents it'll virtually be 1+1, where they're 'glued' together? I need the document to become part of my thesis if that makes sense. So this 50 page document is part of my qual analysis, it contains some writing on it, hence why I had to scan it and I can't simply copy and paste the original transcript. I need to append it because paper trail is needed so that examiners can see where my results arose from.

In terms of the document, imagine that you attach a pdf to word, you can see the whole pdf document within the word document, you can also see your headers and footers incl page numbers on word. That's what I need the final product to be. It'd be the same if you were attaching a picture or anything else, but because I need to attach many pages, I'm wondering if there's a way of attaching more than one page at a time... time is precious right now!

Okay, now I get it. I doubt there is an easier way than page-by-page including but hopefully I'm mistaken :)

Hi Skig, I had exactly the same problem as i needed to include my publications into my appendices so they were in PDF format. Even converting to jpeg will give you individual pages aswell. Word cannot copy/paste a PDF with multiple pages as it will only display the first page. This is a very limiting function of Word. Inserting individual pages as an object was the only option when I did this end of last year, very tedious. Just be aware that the quality of the inserted PDF will be reduced, was ok for my thesis but may not be great if detail is essential.

Sorry I cannot give you an easy method but I can sympathise with this very tedious and time consuming task.

User: kikuka - 16 September 2011 12:04

Skig - what version of word are you using?

User: Skig - 17 September 2011 14:18

Thanks Faerie and Dunnim, I'm starting to think that's the only way...

Quote From kikuka:

I'm using 2010 but I also have accessed to an older version, maybe a 2003? You have any ideas of how to transfer a whole doc apart from page by page?

User: kikuka - 17 September 2011 20:24

In the 2010 version go to insert then choose object from within the text range of options and choose adobe PDF from the list and browse to your file. This should put the whole file in I think.

User: Skig - 17 September 2011 20:38

Thank you for the suggestion Kikuka but I'd alredy tried that and it only imported the first page :-( I think I'll just accept that there isn't a way around it and copy each page individually, it'll be a long process but it needs to be done.

This is very simple to do. Concrete includes a 'Content' block that you can do this with. First, make sure your PDF file is uploaded. Follow these steps:

1. Using the Content block, add your image into the content.

2. While still in edit mode and with content block edit dialog open, click ONCE on the image that you want to add the link to.

3. In the selector above the editor, select 'Link to File'.

4. Select the file that you will link to.

5. Save and publish page.

That's it! Let me know if this helped and were able to do this with success.


Or you can choose some tools .
have you ever tried someone?
if not, i want to recommend a professional [url=http://www.yiigo.com/net-document-image-plugin/pdf-plugin/pdf-write.shtml]PDF sdk[/url] i've used before. it is pretty a genius.
i believe you can attach many PDF or jpeg pages without going back and forth inserting objects/pictures with the help of it.
you can also other free trials of [url=http://www.yiigo.com/]Yiigo[/url]. to deal with different files of documents, images, and barcodes.
i wish i've offered a good choice for you.

Bset Regards

Arron

hi! Arron. thank you for sharing.but i haven't tried yet. it seems like it is very new and simple. my friends like it, but i want something more complex.

User: merrysmith - 21 January 2019 12:13

My PDF files doesn't open after updating my Windows 10 OS. one of my friends suggested visiting https://errorcode0x.com/windows-10-preparing-automatic-repair-error-fixed/, but didn't get the proper guidance. Can anyone have faced this?
