PHOTOSHOP can save the PDF to TIF/ JPG/ BMP/ etc ...Then you can "image xref".Hope that helps [spin1] RE: INSERT PDF INTO AUTOCAD karole (Computer) 7 Aug 03 11:19 Hey,I just spent about an hour trying to get a pdf into autocad 2002. Here's how I finally got decent quality:First, I opened the page in Adobe Reader (6.0),then used the "Select All" to get a bounding box around the entire page... then, I changed the zoom to 200 (This is how you can retain the quality). You can paste the image that's now on the clipboard directly into AutoCad, but I found that it took a very long time to process the paste, so, instead, I pasted into PowerPoint first, and resized. Then I selected the image from PowerPoint and did a copy. Then went to AutoCad and pasted. It acutally came in nice and clear. I know I probably went the long way about doing this, but I didn't have any of the other programs mentioned by the other folks.Anyway... hope it helps.Karole RE: INSERT PDF INTO AUTOCAD mstg007 (Civil/Environmental) (OP) 7 Aug 03 11:56 Dude... that is a great idea! So we know that PowerPoint can Hold Great High Quality!Thanks!
