Allow a PDF file to be imported into a drawing, as draft entities.

Allow a PDF file to be imported into a drawing, as draft entities.

Would like the ability to add information from a PDF file onto a drawing sheet. Example a customer sends me a drawing in PDF format (they have no other file type). I do some design work that needs a drawing to represent the changes/design along with the customers provided information. If I could import the customers information into my drawing (as draft entities) then I only have one drawing file to manage.

This currently can be done, but there are issues with various versions and date codes of Adobe Reader.

Please improve this functionality.

Please explain how. I don't have PDF listed as a import option and PDF's don't show when using the ALL option.

once you've created your drawing, go to layout tab > Object

It may help....

I, on the other hand, have some issues with the image seeming to disappear on the screen but it does print.
