Subject:off topic - pdf file into pagemaker 6.0 From:LARS BRADLEY <vitex -at- PHOENIX -dot- NET> Date:Wed, 15 Oct 1997 11:49:45 -0500
I need some professional advice:
I'm about to start laying out a 500 page manual. Out of the 500 I need to
scan 380 graphics. Then the client turns around and provided me with a pdf
file containing the 500 pages.
My questions are the following:
1.) the final file is to be in pagemaker, but he wants to use the graphics
from the pdf file into the new manual. is this possible??
2.) can I edit the pdf file and keep the graphics intact???
3.) can I copy the graphics from a pdf file into pagemaker???
4.) if I could copy the graphincs out of the pdf file will it hurt
Thanks in advance!
