    Converting PDFs

      Is there a way to convert an existing PDF created in AutoCAD to a searchable PDF using Adobe Acrobat DC?

          A assume your PDF document contains vector graphics, and is not just an image of your drawing. In that case, ACAD very likely is using vector graphics for the text as well - which means that you have drawings of text, but no real text in your document. This makes is almost impossible to convert the drawing to a searchable document. The only way I can see is to convert the whole drawing to an image, and then run OCR on that image.
