Can someone help. My autocad will no long attach a pdf. I get as far as selecting the pdf, but then i wait, and wait, for the next dialog box to choose path, insertion point, page etc....it never appears and I have to cancel ....getting very behind with my work. Any suggestions? (By the way I have done this a hundreds times over, so not sure what's changed).

Can you make a screenshot from that situation? I don't understand what's going on, when you are as far as "select the pdf" but you don't see the dialog box (where you would select the pdf) ...?
And just to make sure: make your AutoCAD application window and (when opened) the XRef-manager window as small as possible to see what's going on behind. It happend to me that the XRef-manager was as big as the screen and the dialog-box used to define insertion-point/rotation/scaling was opened, but behind the XRef-manager.

Hi, Not much to screen shot really as it is the second dialog box that doesn't show up.....the first one does allow me to browse to the file, i choose the file, open, and then wait. It is the second box that doesn't appear, the one that allows me to choose which page of the pdf, insertion point, scale etc. I know in the past I have found it hidden under another window as I work on dual screens, this time however, I have closed all the other windows, reduced the window I am working in and tried everything! I can't fathom it and would really be appreciative of a solution.

then try the old trick with windows not reachable. When you think it should be there press <ALT> <SPACE> ==> there should popup a small menu that lets you control the window, one of the options is then "Move" ==> use your keyboard cursor keys to go down to "Move" and press <ENTER>. Next step is to use again the keyboard cursor keys <LEFT> or <RIGHT> to get the window in the visible area of your monitor. At the moment you see it you can move your mouse to pick a new position.
