Okay, I was incorrect.  I thought I did open a PDF in Writer.  But it must 
have been Draw, not Writer.  Sorry.
I just did some work on this problem and discovered a way to do it.  Here is 
what I did:

  In Writer,
  Insert -> Object -> OLE Object ->
  In the dialog that comes up, Click on "Create from file" at the top.
  In the dialog that comes up, Click on "Select..." to bring up the
  file browser.
  Select the PDF file you want to insert.
  Click on "Open".
  Click on OK.


   Thank you. I think that converting .pdf to .eps will be quicker so I'll
try that first.

Just be aware of some EPS issue in LO (and AOO):

1. EPS images in LO will only show the 'image preview'. The thread from
this list is worth a read:

2. You will most likely experience serious scrolling issues in a
document with a large EPS. A simple example of this is:

Download and try the attachment:
and you'll see what I mean. Open the TOP in a terminal & set to remain
on top. Open the attachment .odt and try to scroll to the bottom of page
2 (where the EPS is embedded). You'll see a significant delay & if you
watch TOP, you'll see that soffice first calls up gs (Ghost Script) &
then convert (ImageMagick), and then finally will display the image preview.

You can imagine what viewing the document will be like with multiple EPS
