Hi Charles and all Others,

may be you are opening an originally called "hybrid PDF"?

These ones are PDF that includes original source document in the PDF "attachments" (that may be of various types... see the link below)

In this case if your pdf opens in Writer, as you told us, it may be the pdf contains an *odt* as attachment (from which the following Writer association...).

I think you can verify if this is true by inspecting the file with some tools like Ghostscript (dump* command), pdftk, ...
and see the attachments/streams/...

Finally you can create your own "hybrid PDF" checking the box "Embed OpenDocument file"

Hope this help.

Happy new year,


p.s. I think it will be helpful if we decide to give a name to this kind of PDFs and, once more, to standardize them (Oasis-Open, for example).
