Are there any options to extract vectors from PDF using Bentley products or cloud services? There are many convertors to dwg but it is not straight forward. It would also be enough to have snap to vectors so attaching as reference would be ok.
We are planning to add support for referencing and opening PDF files which contain vector data, its in our backlog for update 15. Depending on the complexity of the task will determine if the functionality is released via our technology preview process for update 15 or 16.

In case anyone is still looking for more on this issue - the latest CE still has no support for vector data in PDF files.
My work-around to extract contours from a PDF was to export PDF> EPS in Adobe Acrobat Pro. Open the EPS in Adobe Illustrator and export EPS>DWG. Open DWG in Microstation.
This was planned for U16, but certain issues meant we couldn't release it. PDF vector support will be in U17.
That's great news! Will this be available both for "import" as well as for referencing?
