You can markup PDFs without having to convert them to DWF. I use Bluebeam to markup and measure areas, angles, and linear distances.

> Because not everyone uses DWF I receive a lot of PDFs which I convert to DWFs and attach to DWG's. About 50% of the DWF's created this way work great and saves me a lot of time. The other 50% show up with a white background and plot as a solid black shape. I am new to using DWFs so I don't know if there is a setting or something that I'm missing.
You can use this program to markup DWG, DXF and DWF.

A full version of Adobe Acrobat has a nice markup suite also, as well as some conversion tools. You might be able to save those raster pdf to .jpg or .bmp files also.

i can convert to dwf and insert in my drawing, but the ones that are raster pdfs have line crossing them.
