Inserting Layers

Post by jeffberk » Tue Nov 19, 2019 6:22 pm

I'm trying to create a multi-layer pdf so that I can overlay line drawings created in another program.
Specifically, I have drawings of circuits as an SVG files. I'd like the user to be able to view one or more of the circuits at a time because they get too confusing if all displayed at one time.
I can export the individual SVG files in pdf but I'm confused if there is a way to import each of these pdf's into separate layers created in PDF-XChange Editor Plus (Version 8.0, build 332.0).

Hi Jeff,

thanks for the post excellent suggestion. I call it a suggestion because we do not currently have a feature to allow you to add these files as layers, however we think we should.

To that end I have raised a formal Feature Request around this, and while internal to the company only, should you refer to RT#5012: Featyure Request :: Editor :: Add content as layer in the forum or an email to then any support staff member can get you a status update.

I hope that helpless.
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards
