    You can insert multiple pages from a PDF into Word using Insert_PDFs (to Word) from
    This inserts more than just the first page and it works right from Word (Office 2000-2010) using an Insert PDFs button. There is a free version that inserts a couple of pages from a PDF. You can also resize all the inserted images.
    Cheers.

    What if the Icon doesn’t want to show? Part of the label is there, the box for where the icon sits can show but the icon is not visible…
