|Summary||0000261: Use pdf as background|
|Description||In 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.

Imported PDF not but you can convert your PDF to image:
||Yes, i saw that image import. But with this image import i have to import every image one by one. Some kind of import assistant to create the pages in schematic would be useful|
||One more point on this: When i add the original pdf as image only i am not able to select text on this anymore. This is useful when i got the original pdf as export from other cad system. When importing something like this it might help to get option to remove text and items from this import|
A workaround is to convert the PDF file into DXF files, and then convert these DXFs into QET elements elmt ...
