JohnVV,

I know that libreoffice-pdfimport is installed in LO 5.

I believe Draw was previously used to import the pdf rather than Writer.

Has this changed?

To echo the OP's question, how is this done using Writer?

As best as I can tell, Draw is still used to import an .pdf file. I just tried
to open several .pdf files in Writer and each time Draw was launched and the .pdf file opened therein.
