ho hum.

It's interesting that software like acrobat pro and PDFShrink and particularly this one...

PDFPen http://smilesoftware.com/PDFpen/index.html

... seem to have the 'open & edit a PDF file' thing down. I wonder if there are any closet LiveCode dev dudes on their teams!!!!

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....
