This has wishlist status. LibO includes an extension with lets PDF files be converted (with some minor formatting loss on text) into its native format. This is quite useful for editing PDF files or taking just some parts of a PDF file. Nonetheless, it would be similarly useful to be able to 'embed' a PDF image 'as is' into a LibO document. In this case, LibO should just take care of just /rendering/ the image at the correct size and resolution. You accept not being able to edit, but you are sure that the formatting is the correct one. I believe that many libraries exist already that could be useful to perform such rendering.
This would be quite useful to those who already have tons of pdf images, since these are the typical format used with pdflatex. Furthermore, I believe that it could greatly simplify extensions such as TexMath, that now need external tools for converting the tex output into something that can be rendered by LibO.

This is a feature request, therefore changed Importance to 'enhancement' and Status to 'new'.
Fixed with new PDF import framework (pdfium)
