Default How do you append a PDF document to the end of an essay?

How big is your PDF file? (How many pages?)

I'm interested to see what suggestions others come up with, because this is
something I do quite frequently. The only solution I have found is to insert
"snapshots" of each page of the PDF file into the Word document as images.

To do this, open your PDF document and size it so you can see each entire
page at a time. Use the Snapshot tool (Tools -- Select and Zoom -- Snapshot
Tool, available even in the free Reader version) and then click to select the
area you want to copy (i.e., one page of your PDF file). It will flash, at
which point you know the image has been copied. Then go into your Word
document, insert the cursor where you want the image, and paste. You can
resize the image in Word so it takes up an entire page. Repeat this process
for each page of your PDF file.

Advantage to this method: you can ensure the PDF file is truly part of your
document, meaning it can have consistent headers/footers/page numbering etc.
with your document.

Disadvantages: time-consuming; not practical for documents of more than a
handful of pages; makes for very large Word files.

I hope this helps somewhat - I'll be watching to see what other suggestions
people have!
