Hi Marie,

There is no way to way to actually embed the PDF as viewable text. Rather what we use are links to the file, in the format: [ Link Name]  which would then display as: Link Name

Alternatively, you could attach the PDF directly to the profile and it will be accessible in the side bar.

For modern ancestors, you could potentially convert the PDF's to images and then insert the images in the biography, but that is not exactly a best practice and may even be discouraged since it would be harder to collaborate on the data within them.

Thank you, Steve, I was afraid that would be the answer - but I had my fingers crossed anyway
