    Import PDF

    Level 7
      I've been sent a PDF that is just a large graphic, but I can't import it
      into FW MX 2004. Is there any way to get it in natively, apart from doing a
      printscreen and paste?

      Thanks,
      Tony

          Anthony,

          Use the Snapshot Tool in Acrobat. The icon on the toolbar looks like a
          camera.

            While there are several ways to turn this PDF into bitmap (starting from
            exporting from Acrobat full edition, and ending with using GhostScript),
            about the only reliable solution alloving to get vectors intact that I
            personally used was inporting in Freehand.

              That worked - very similar to printscreen, although a good deal easier!

              Thanks,

                Neat. I never thought about importing to Freehand, but it worked well.
                Some of the objects actually were vectors.
