Embedding PDF

Is it possible to get a function to embed entire pdf files as an icon into documents instead of only single pages at the time

    Personally, I don't need complex OLE functionalities (i.e. embed part of a document in another one).
    I think that what most people really want is to be able to attach any file into an Office document in the same way they do with a Mail message!
    I don't believe that this is a complex functionality to implement! So, come on Microsoft! Please, make an effort!

    The ability to open .pdfs for most is critical especially as a business user as clients embed files all the time. Please fix this for Mac users - this has been an issue for years and any work arounds no long work!

    Before I buy Office 2019 for Mac I would like to know if OLE support was added to this release. Windows versions of Office provide this functionality but Mac users must buy an inferior product that doesn't allow embedding a PDF in a Word document.

    Microsoft, how difficult can it be to add OLE support to Office for Mac? Hopefully, this problem has gone away.

    I am disappointed to learn about this missing function after purchasing of office 2016. It is just professional, as this function is used in all organisations. As long, as such important functions are not compatible, mac usage in most bigger organisations will be no option. I would love to have this function.

    Please, this seems to be an issue already since 2011... how can it be so cumbersome to have similar features in Mac and PC?

    I need to send password protected files, and Word is the only way I know of, but my clients who have Macs, can't open them. Need help.
