Summary0000261: Use pdf as background
DescriptionIn many cases i would like to update a existing schematic of a customer machine or building installation. In those cases i get a exported or scanned pdf with the original schematic and would like to add some plc io pins or a new coil with contact or similar.
To avoid building up the whole schematic with over 200 pages or something in qelectrotech i would like to import the original schematic as background for the foils and use some white areas to remove original contacts or something and add own components later.
TagsNo tags attached.
