So after converting to PDF it should retain those embedded files.
it opens up the document. So the same behavior should retain in final PDF after
I too had this problem, but found the solution at last
for proper format you may convert the embedded objects (PDF’s, Word,Excels) in policy as a link but after converting it to PDF it shows as image but format remains same means name which you want.
Upload all the files(password protected-UN-editable) which you want to link in policy(encrypted) to your google drive and give permissions to everyone who has this link.
open converted PDF (Policy Document or any) in Adobe Acrobat DC or Any Adobe PDF Editor then right-click on the Icon or document which you hyperlinked in the root policy document then click -> create link and select invisible rectangle -> then at left bottom click open web page and click ok then it popups url space then go to your google drive where you saved all your supporting documents for this policy then right-click on the particular document you wanted to link and get shareable link copy it and paste in the URL space in pdf editor and click ok and save the document now your policy with embedded documents will work in pdf mode also. Enjoy bro… I just searched about same issue so i found yours too so am posting this now may be you already sorted out … if not am happy that i solved yours tooo…
