Created: 0000-00-00Last modified: 0000-00-00

In order for Import PDF to work in Carlson Takeoff or Carlson Construction you need to download and install Ghostscript from the following website:
 
http://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html
 
Select the download matched to your version of CAD. Be sure to pick from the GNU Public License column (left column) of either the 32 or 64 bit Windows version, depending upon your version of CAD. So, if you are running a 32 bit version of CAD, even on a 64 bit version of Windows, you should download the 32 bit version of Ghostscript. Only download the 64 bit version of Ghostscript if you are running a 64 bit version of CAD. When prompted, click SAVE and save the file to your hard drive.

After downloading the .EXE to your computer double click on it to install. Once it is installed, Carlson Takeoff or Carlson Construction will automatically utilize this software when you run Import PDF file.
