<< 1.) the final file is to be in pagemaker, but he wants to use the

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
1) It is possible in THEORY... read on
2) I don't believe you can edit a PDF ... that's sort of the point of it. If
you have Acrobat Exchange, you can separate the PDFs into individual files,
which may be helpful. Also, another option is to use Adobe Illustrator, into
which you can import PDFs, then edit the file as needed in Illustrator and
save it out as a TIF.
3) You can link the PDF as an object... but this sometimes comes up as a PDF
icon rather than the actual diagram.
4) If you maximize the size of the PDF to fit your screen, you can do a
screen capture. The quality loss is minimal.
