Importing PDF files

Does anyone know if you can import a PDF file and work on it in FreeStyle, making changes and adding items, save it and then export the altered file.  I have Smart Draw and when you import a PDF file - you can work on it and make changes but when you save it and try to export it - the backgrounds to the original PDF file are missing.

Hi Ray,


In Freestyle you can only work on .dwg files.

You can export a file in PDF format, but unfortunately, Freestyle doesn’t support importing a PDF file to view or make changes on it.


Having said that, you can suggest this feature at Freestyle wish list, where you can also see and vote for suggestions made by other AutoCAD Freestyle users
