PDF as PDF inside PowerPoint

  1. From the main menu bar, choose Insert, Object. The Insert Object dialog box appears.
  2. In the Insert Object dialog box, click “Create from file” . 
  3. Click Browse.
  4. Choose the PDF you want to insert. 
  5. PowerPoint embeds the PDF and displays an Adobe Acrobat icon. 
  6. Right-click the icon and choose Action Settings. The Action Settings dialog box appears. 
  7. In the Action Settings dialog box, click “Object action” and choose “Edit”. 
  8. Click OK.

A copy of the PDF is now embedded in your PPT file, meaning that you won’t have to worry about links breaking when you move the file to another computer or send it to someone else. Other than that, it behaves similarly to the linked PDFs described above.
