Placing PDF drawings does not always work

Anonymous
Not applicable
Does anyone know why my Archicad 14 when placing a pdf works with some pdf s but not with placing other pdf drawings. Could it be newer version of pdf files it's not recognizing?

Your help would be greatly appreciated

This was my first thought.
I think PDF formats may have changed.
For example since ARCHICAD 19 we can save PDFs in archive version (PDF/A).
But the real test would be to try the PDF in both AC14 and AC19 for example.
If you go to myarchicad.com you can register and download a 30-day trial version in which you can try whether the AC19 version places the PDF or not.
If it does then it is definitely a difference in PDFs that is causing the problem.
