PDF file

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I was working on set design and I was working on my ground plan. I accidentally deleted the pdf of the ground plan that was behind the set pieces that I had placed. How do I import the PDF and have the set pieces I drafted go back on top of it as opposed to the PDF covering everything?


Any help with this would be much appreciated.

You can Import the PDF again and use command "send to Back" to have it behind all other elements. Better would be to have it on a seperate layer behind the drawing.

Hope this helps

Alternatively, import the PDF onto its own Design Layer and move that layer below the other geometry. You can drag it on the Navigation palette, if you put the mouse pointer on the Stacking order column number.
