Pdf File Too Much For Ca ?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use this pdf site plan in a set of CDs and

for some reason my computer is having trouble with it.

When trying to place it directly into layout CA crashed

(first time in a long time).

Made a new plan just for topo, file size is not

larger than the main house plan for this drawing set, but

zooming in and out and panning are too slow and computer sounds

like it is working extra hard.

Whats the problem with this file ?

Pdf files can sometimes be too large for an import. They can bog down the plan file even when imported to a CAD detail.

 

Try importing it as a picture. Every Adobe Reader has the ability to take a snapshot of the pdf.

 

Click on the camera icon, and then right click on the screen after it takes a "snap shot". 

 

Then you can paste an image file into your drawing rather than the over-sized pdf file.

I use lots of full 24x36 pdf's in my layouts without any slowdown except printing to pdf might take a little longer. Always put them in your layout and not the plan .

Thanks for that tip, so much faster than taking screenshot, opening and editing in Paintshop, savins
