api is not the appropriate list...

Nevertheless, you can insert pdf either as plugin or as object (at least 
under Windows).

So why? PDF is not a graphic,just as Excel isn't.

Peter,

Thanks for your interest.
The reason i want to plaid for PDF as a graphic format in OO, is based 
on the reason that  we still not can make a PDF from a OO document with 
EPS Graphics init. We end up with a PDF who contains the rasterised 
preview and not the Vector Graphic. It seems  be a to hard job to has 
EPS vector graphics when transfering OO to PDF.
A PDF can contain 1 EPS Vector Image and further been used as graphic 
, this technique is very common in professional Grahic workflows.
Problem is that we only can Use this kind of PDF's as a OBJECT in OO 
documents, with allow us to show a EPS without ratserized preview  and 
the tranformation to a PDF go's well also.
The problem with a OBJECT is that it have some properties like a 
graphic but not all ( a object can not been cropped ).
