Description simonbr 2003-03-26 09:37:14 UTC
I opened a Microsoft Word document with an embedded PDF document in it. If the 
document is opened read-write, you can click on the embedded PDF object, and a 
pdf viewer window will open. However, this does not happen if the document is 
opened read-only.

In MS Word, you can open the PDF object in both cases. The same behaviour is 
requested as an enhancement for OOo.

Could you verify please before forward it to BH.

The write-protected mode in OO is quite different from the one in MS
Word. Thus a new mechanism must be implemented, if the user also wants
to view the content of a PDF-OLE in a OO document. This is not only
Writer-related, all OO-applications a affected.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
