Is it possible to insert a pdf into an Inventor drawing? It looks like there's an option to insert an image on the ribbon bar in IV 2010, however it's grayed out. Anyone know of a simple way to do this? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Dennis,
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
One other question: is it possible to scale or stretch the pdf once it's inserted?

You could try to dimension one of the sides and make it smaller.

Doh!
To answer my own question...
If you hold the mouse cursor over the corners of the inserted pdf, you can drag diagonally to scale it up or down.

There are yellow circles at the corners. Drag to stretch.
