Hi. From your question I am guessing that you want to save your pdf so it can be edited in Writer subsequently.

  1. In the Menu click File | Export As | Export As PDF... a new dialog window will open. Adjust your selection settings, compression, watermark etc. to suit. Under General tick the box that says Hybrid PDF (embedded ODF file). Click Export. For me, I am always changing the options to suit different media so I nearly always use Export As PDF... image description

Btw, the direct export as pdf creates a normal pdf that Adobe Reader expects, the fact that Draw can open and re-arrange pdf files does not mean PDF is an ODG format. Cheers, Al
