PDF Import for DraftSight


PDFImport for DraftSight requires DraftSight R1.3 or higher (Windows only).
If this plugin stops working after an upgrade of DraftSight, you can download from this page the most recent setups.

NB: In DraftSight 2016 the new ribbon interface moved the PDFImport feature to a menu located close to the help in the top-right corner of DraftSight. You may also call the feature by entering PDFIMPORT in the command line.

Import PDFs into your drawings

Import descriptions, diagrams, designs, construction plans, drawings, and any other PDF files to view and edit them within DraftSight with this PDF Import plugin from Graebert.

Use and convert PDF information

The PDF Import plugin allows you to insert all or selected pages from multiple page PDF documents within seconds. Converting large numbers of files to DXF is easy using the batch processing feature. Or convert vectors to drawing entities (lines, circles, ellipses, and splines) instantly. This plugin is affordably priced compared to other products, and you’ll receive upgrades at no additional cost for the duration of your license.

Download a 30-day free trial and utilize these additional features:

  • Rotate and scale imported entities
  • Filter to ignore text, vector paths, or images
  • Consolidate characters into lines of text
  • Position multiple text pages individually in the drawing
  • Intelligent entity recognition Layer control
  • Font substitution


The 30-day trial version does not include batch processing.
