Not only PDF can't be collected, essentially every "editable" document format can't be collected. I hope the collect function will be soon expanded to all formats (and fonts). Right now this function is pretty useless ... at least for me.

This is actually by design, but I am logging an improvement in this area as we should just be able to copy the file from it's original linked location to the new collected location.

We will struggle if it's an embedded PDF, as we store our "imported" version of the PDF and not the original.

I can "Collect" a linked (or embedded) .afphoto file, so I'm not sure exactly what you mean, Joachim.

We have made fixes/improvements to this area (Collect linked PDF's) of the program in the latest customer beta. If you would like to try these changes the beta software is available in the forum posts listed below.

The latest beta builds are downloadable from links at the top of each of these beta forum posts.

These betas install parallel, next to the release version (they do not overwrite your release) and so the fixes can be tried in the beta without affecting your normal workflow in the release version.

Once these programs have been through a full beta process the change will be released in a future free 1.8.1/1.8.2 update/patch to all customers.
