    Importing PDFs with notes into ID

    Mike Fernbank Level 1

      I'm using the latest versions of AI, ID and Adobe Acrobat XI. I was sent a PDF with some notes drawn on it. It is a small section of a very large outdoor site plan, so I want to bring it into ID and place it so I can focus on just the annotated areas. Much to my surprise, the notes do not import. No surprise, there doesn't seem to be an obvious way to do this pretty fundamental action. I imagine there is a way to do it in the settings of one of the three separate applications, but I can't seem to find it. Can anyone let me know how this is done? In short: export a PDF so I can see it in Illustrator or ID the way I see it in Acrobat.

       

      Thanks,

      Mike
