I'm currently working on a large project that requires me to import many

I can open the PDF file (in draw) and cut and paste each PDF page into
the document, but that is painful.
Is there a way to make File->Insert work, perhaps via a macro? If not,
consider this a feature request.
What OS are you using?
In some pdf readers you can export the entire file as a plain text
file and this file can be opened in Writer or imported into Calc. I do
not know if this would less or more painful. You would have the entire
file at once but would need to format the text.
The most painless option is find a PDF to .doc [.odt] conversion
package. I know that there are some low costing package that do this,
but I would like to see a free one somewhere.
The "large project" and "many documents" seem to me that if the number
is large enough, you would want to have an auto-conversion package for
the PDF documents.
