I've worked with a partener who use PADS to generate PCB. He has generated a PDF file which represents a layout board. But I can't make a research of a component because the PDF is manage is an image. I think he mist convert the file into PS file and then convert PS file into PDF file. But he told me that I can't do that. I can just convert into ASCII file.
Have you got an idea ?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
