How to insert a PDF into Word.

Learn how to insert a PDF into a Word document by either inserting it directly into the document or converting the PDF file.

Steps to add a PDF to Word.

The easiest way to add a PDF to Word is to simply insert the entire file. Using Word, follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the Word document you want to add the PDF to.
  2. Click Insert > Object > Create from File.
  3. Browse for the PDF you want to insert.
  4. Click Okay.

Your chosen PDF should insert directly into the Word document. From there, you can adjust the size or position of the PDF, just like you would an image.

If you want to learn how to add a PDF to Word and retain the ability to edit the PDF, click Insert > the arrow next to Object > Text from File. That will tell Word to create an editable version of the PDF and insert it into the document. (Be aware that this method can alter the PDF’s formatting.)

Convert PDFs to Word.

The best way to add editable PDFs to a Word document is to convert the PDF first. It’s easy to convert PDFs to Word using an online PDF editor:

  1. Visit the Acrobat Online website.
  2. Upload the PDF you want to convert.
  3. Click Export to DOCX.
  4. Download the new Word file.

Now that your PDF is in .docx format, you can easily copy and paste the entire file or specific parts directly into the original Word document.
