Unable to import pdf files into Vectorworks

Question

I have tried to import two different PDF files into Vectorworks 2019 but everytime they crash my Macbook so that the screen is covered in moving lines and I have to restart my computer.  I am not aware if there is any corruption in either file as they open fine in Acrobat or Photoshop.  I have tried dropping and dragging each file byt get the same problem.

Having read info o forums on the internet I saved the file as an image file, in this case a jpg, but when I have tried to import as an image file it simply does nothing  at all.

Can someone help as a matter of urgency!  Need to import both files as groundwork for some landscape designs due for a college project in a week!

Thanks

@Charlotte74 Could you send me the pdf file that you are having the issues with for testing? Also, what Product and version of Vectorworks and SP are you using, and Operating System.

Hello Juan,

Thanks for responding.  I'm literally in tears over this!  I have two separate files I have been trying to import which both crash my computer.  They were sent to me by two different sources so don't understand why both are failing.  As I said I am using Vectorworks 2019.  I am on MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6.

I attach the files here.

Thanks
