I'm trying to include a pdf-image containing LaTex code into tex-document in BaKoMa Tex editor. When I include the pdf-image I get the following error from BaKoMa Tex:

enter image description here

Note that I tried the hint of the error message (i.e. open the pdf in Acrobat and save), but this did not help.

More spesifically this is what I have done:

  1. I have created a svg-document using InkScape (svg is the file format of InkScape) to draw the shapes in the image etc. I have included LaTex-code as text into the svg-file and then saved my drawing as pdf with the option pdf+LaTex export. enter image description here
  2. Next I used online tex-editor overleaf to combine the LaTex-code and pdf: enter image description here

  3. Next I use pdfescape to crop the pdf-image suitably.

  4. And finally I simply include the pdf-image into my tex-document in BaKoMa Tex which results in the error shown in the first image above.

How can I solve this error?

The problem is unsupported compressed objects in BaKoMa TeX before V 11.0

In this reason, there are two ways to solve the problem:

1) Use most recent version of BaKoMa TeX, version 11.0 or later

2) Convert PDF such that to uncompress objects which may be done by saving PDF in 1.4 compatibility mode.
