To include PDF attachments when exporting spec sheets and spec packages, check out this article. If you’ve done that, but the PDF files are still not being included in the export, you may need to flatten them.

Flattening a PDF for print removes transparency information and converts images to a format that our export system can.

Pro tip: Save a working version of your file as well as a PDF version that you can flatten.

There are many resources online that you can use to easily flatten your PDF for print. If you're not sure how to do that, check out the articles below:
