How to Mark up a word document or PDF

How do I import a pdf and mark it up?

Hi @judy and thanks for the post!

While our little wireframing app does allow you to import assets, the only graphical assets we support are images in PNG, JPG/JPEG and GIF formats.

We do allow you to import non-image assets (e.g. .DOC or .PDF) but they can’t be used in your wireframes - they’re just bundled into your project file for convenience (e.g. you may want to include a requirements document in MSWord or PDF format for ease of distribution).

I fear that I’m maybe not fully understand what it is that you’re trying to do so maybe you could take a moment to expand on your goal and we can see if we do what you need? Regards.

Hi Alasdair
Happy Friday
I found a work around; I took a picture of my document saved it as PNG. Cumbersome but it works.
Thanks for your help.
