Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing a PDF, part of AutoCAD 2017 New Features.
- [Instructor] Another really nice feature…available to you in the AutoCAD 2017.1 update…involves importing PDFs into your AutoCAD drawing…that have SHX shape codes.…Now SHX are the old shape codes,…they're not true type text like you have in Windows,…they're old ones.…So what we can do there is we can…bring in a PDF into our drawing.…So you'll see I've got a new drawing open, import PDF.dwg.…We're going to bring a PDF in that has SHX shape code fonts.…
In this case, the good old Roman S font.…So let's import that PDF.…Now the Import_PDF.dwg file and the PDF…that we're going to import are both…in your Lynda.com exercise files…to download and use to follow along with this video.…So, over to the application menu, the big red A,…and I'm going to import the PDF.…So there's import, there's PDF like so.…Now, as soon as I do that, it prompts me…to select the PDF underlay, which I don't have.…So what I need to do there is,…can you see on the command line there,…it prompts me to select a file.…
So if I just press enter, it will now…
