I have imported PDF files into Protel. It worked just as if it were a
netlist or similar file. I didn't have any issues with this.
The only weird thing that happened was if the PDF file was being used by
Protel then the Acrobat program wouldn't recognize it and wouldn't open it.
I don't recall if it worked after closing Protel or did we make a
modification to the file in Protel and save it and then Acrobat had a
problem.
As a whole we did not have a problem importing PDF files. I don't have a
clue why it wouldn't work for you, I suspect registry issues.
