How to Insert pdf file in Draw ?

Postby JackSMT » Thu May 29, 2014 10:18 am

Hi friends,

Please I need to insert a number of PDF files into a draw document that I'm working on, I've tried inserting as an OLE object, and as
a file, but I either get a message saying that the file couldn't be loaded or a whole load of coding and nothing else.
Please can someone help, I'm going crazy, the only way I can see that I can do this is to convert all the files to another format which
will take me hours!

You can try the pdf import extension. That will import a pdf as Draw objects.
However, it also isn't perfect, so the pdf may not look exactly like it does in the viewer.
If you need perfect formatting & appearance, you may have to resort to screenshots from the pdf viewer.
