Where do I find the PDF import extension?

Described here http://www.libreoffice.org/features/extensions/

there is no pdf import in latest http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center

dnf install libreoffice-pdfimport

As the page you reference says:

“Note that, in LibreOffice 3.3, many great extensions that were formerly separate downloads have now been included in the package as standard features.”

See Tools>>Extension Manager to check that it’s installed. PDF files opened in LO open in Draw.

But a problem for me is that WIN Master Builds are shipped without PDF import. I do not know any possibility to get the separate extension.

@rrbd, that is a known bug, please see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48243

On Ubuntu or Debian, simply install the libreoffice-pdfimport package.

Yes, this works.

Do a parallel install of 3.5.3 (http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel)

Delete your current pdfimport folder under \share\extensions\ and copy the folder from the 3.5.3 share\extensions

You might need to execute LO two or three times to allow it to add PDFimport to the list of extensions :wink:

Tested with version 3.6.0alpha0+ (Build ID: 8a78020) under Win XP Pro x86 SP3

Yep, works for me w/ Master (Build ID: 35ec153 · 2012-05-02) after the third try.


In Ubuntu Lucid the libreoffice-pdfimport package is somehow unavailable in the libreoffice ppa. Installing the extension directly from the project page worked.
