 The PDF file format is one of the most popular exchange formats especially when you prepare files for printing. But it is quite difficult to edit these files. ABViewer allows converting PDF to vector DWG or DXF file formats for its further editing. Please note that PDF files can contain both vector and raster graphics. As a result of conversion in ABViewer raster images are converted as images embedded in DWG that are saved as OLE-objects. In other words, vectorization of raster images is not supported.

 Tools to convert PDF to DWG in ABViewer:

1. The Import PDF/EMF command opens the PDF file in the program having already converted it. With the help of the Save command the converted file can be saved to DWG or DXF.

2. The Page to CAD command allows converting the current layout of the opened PDF file into the vector DWG or DXF format.
