Export to Word/Print only shows the first page of any PDF section rendered in E-Notebook 2014
It is a limitation for Client machines with Adobe Reader. While doing
Export to Word, PDF section is inserted as an OLE object into the Word
document, and you can see only the first page. But it is possible to
double click on the first page, and the PDF will open in external
Reader application. This word document can be transferred to another
machine (even without E-Notebook), and the OLE object will still be
accessible using the double click.
If you want all pages of PDF sections to be included into the rendering
output, you need to use a Client machine with Acrobat.
If there is no Adobe software (Acrobat or Reader) on a Client machine,
then "Export to Word"/"Print"'/"Export to PDF" output will only show
icon instead of PDF section content. In case of "Export to Word", this
icon is still clickable, and on a different machine with Reader/Acrobat
it will open an external Adobe application to display the entire PDF
However, it is a very rare scenario to not have Reader/Acrobat at all.
Most Clients do have either Reader or Acrobat as prerequisites, to be
able to see PDF sections in E-Notebook.
