      Is it possible to import a pdf instead of a jpg to put in the base "photo layer?"

       

      I start with a pdf document convert it to a jpg

           mark it up in ideas

           then finish up with a marked up  jpg document

           then reconvert it back to a pdf

       

      I can only use jpgs in ideas. Converting the pdf to a jpg and them re convert it back after marking it up but this seems like an awfully round about way of doing things especially as it should all be inhouse adobe products .

       

      An alternative would be to use adobe reader to mark up the document, but this does not allow me enough control as compared with marking it up Ideas, particularly with layers and control of the tools.

       

      What I am trying to do is mark up and scribble over my architectual CAD drawings which are exported as a pdf document.

       

      Any one got any bright ideas?

       

      thanks
