Export comments to AutoCAD (Acrobat Pro DC on Windows)
You may have reviewers add comments to a PDF that was created from an AutoCAD drawing. If you use AutoCAD
PDFMaker to create a PDF, you can import comments into the AutoCAD drawing, rather than switch between
AutoCAD and Acrobat DC. You can import most comment types, including drawing markups, sticky notes, stamps,
and text edits.
1 Save the PDF to ensure that recently added comments are included.
2 Do one of the following:
• From the options menu
in the comments list, choose Export To AutoCAD, and then specify the
PDF file and the AutoCAD file in the Import Comments dialog box.
• In AutoCAD, choose Acrobat Markups >Import Comments From AcrobatDC.
3 In the Import Comments dialog box, specify the PDF that contains the comments, specify which comments to
import, and click Continue. If you import a custom set of comments, specify the set by making sure that only the
characteristics you want are selected. You must select at least one option in each category.
