Any solutions available to import PDF's into Requirements Composer?

Hey Friends,

Does anyone know of a way to import PDFs INTO Requirements Composer/RRC NG or Doors? - Not just a work-a-round but something that can become part of a regular process. I know they all export PDFs but what about the other way around? - Any thoughts or insights would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jamie,

There is no PDF integration currently available.  You can import a PDF in to RRC/DNG as an attachment, but any modifications to the file would need to be done by downloading it and making the changes in an external editor.  Hope it helps,

 Hi Jamie. 

Also be sure to checkout the information contained in these videos about exporting/importing with RRC, DOORS and DOORS NG by Jim Marsh. He recommends a 3rd party conversion tool, but does state it does require manual, hands-on work. PDF import is covered in Video 2. Also be sure to note the links, indexing the videos in the description underneath them.
