The problem with this is that a monitor has low resolution compared to say,
a printer, and the resulting jpg that is pasted into Irfanview or whatever

Here's what yo do:
You get what you want to make an image of showing on the monitor.
Click Snapshot Tool and select the area you want the image of. As soon as
you are done selecting, it makes the image. Now don't touch anything, you

Is it possible to insert a pdf into autocad LT 2009 and how? If not, what
steps are needed to convert these pdfs into a formart that can be inserted?
It was previously stated but how i have done it is go to insert, then OLE Object, it will let you browse your files and pick the pdf that you want to insert. as far as the size of the pdf it depends upon how far you are zoomed in or out but after you insert the pdf you can always scale it.
