Autocad lets you select which page from a batch PDF file, when imported you can pick on lines like you can when you import dwg's.

You will need to convert your PDF to TIF format, should be pretty simple in Adobe. Once you have that you can import the TIF into Revit directly onto a sheet or in a drafting view.

Welcome to Revitcity.  How long have you been using Revit?

Hogmodo, are you talking to me? I have been on RevitCity for about 3 years, I've just been an observer, not so much a participator. Thanks for the welcome... if you were talking to me....

I suggest that if you can trace PDF lines in CAD, that you do that, then import....  Better than using a raster image.

I actually imported a 24x36 original size PDF as a tif.  I was able to click on the top right corner to start a line going straight down 192' (24" @ 1/8 scale = 192').  Then I drew a long line to the left, selected the image, clicked and held the bottom right corner to drag it to the line and "wallah" it was scaled to 1/8" in my 1/8 scale plan.  You still can't select the lines to "trace" over them but it is a little bit of a help.
