Hi,

   Sorry to kick this again but most threads are >4yrs cold and I’m hoping there is a better solution that I’m just not finding.  To put a pdf on a drawing, main usage is vendor print on our title block we've found best is to save pdf to png then insert the picture to slddrw but it is still not ideal.  It’s tedious when there are many pages involved and quality is lacking when text is involved or fine lines.

 

The Insert -> Object, create new, adobe acrobat document method is terrible resolution and text is not readable most of the time.  Are we the only ones with this problem, is there a setting I'm missing?  Scaling the pdf has no effect on readability of text in the inserted pdf.

 

For those doing the Insert-Picture option, what is your ideal way of getting the image from the pdf?  We’ve done screen shots, but that has poor quality when done on lower resolution monitors, most are not running 4k here.  Also, is png the best format?

 

Thank you.
