Copy and paste CAD files from PDF?

Postby ive » Tue May 11, 2010 12:11 pm

Hi there, I'm trying to find out whether it's possible to send CAD files out on a PDF so that archtitects can copy and paste the files and use them? They would need access to the full files not just a flat image. Is this possible? I am new to all this, so any help would be gratefully received! Thanks

First day at it myself, but the answer(s) are:

1) to save a drawing as a PDF, use the File -> Export command, and select PDF from the drop-down box. Enter an appropriate name, and you're done

2) you cannot import from a PDF, near as I can tell. You'd have to get a DWG or other CAD-editable file
