Oh, right. Sorry, I guess I spoke too soon. I haven't actually  
imported pdf's as images, I always saved the pdf as an image first  
then imported that. I have a bunch of forms that I fill in that way  
and I've always been able to set everything up for the user first --  
I've never tried to do it "on the fly." Sorry to mislead you....
