How to stop PDF opening as ‘curves’? - Help please

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

Urgent request!

I’m opening a PDF file (floorplan) in Affinity Photo for iPad. All of the lines (and there are hundreds) are importing as curves. Is there any way to stop this, so i get a single layer. 

Any help most appreciated

Thanks :)

Hi cwmbrancon,

I suspect this will be how the PDF is made up and there won't be much we can do, if you'd like to attach the PDF file i'll be happy to look into this.  If you'd rather not attach the floor plan here, please use the Dropbox link below to upload and it will be deleted once the issue has been looked at:

Hi Stokerg,

Thanks for the response :) 

Unfortuntely, the plan is very confidential, so not possible to send through. The pdf will have been produced from AutoCAD, so what you say makes sense as it will comprise blocks and lines. 

I think i’ll have to export it as a high quality JPEG and settle for that.

Cheers - appreciated
