Hello CAD users.

I am quite new to AutoLISP. My question here could be silly but please help me out.

The LISP I want to make is a command that imports multiple pdf files.

First, I found this in the forum.
But this is using "pdfattach" command. As I need to modify specific contents in AutoCAD after importing pdf files, I have to use "pdfimport" command, not "pdfattached" command. (pdfattached command doesn't allow me to modify specific text or line after importing pdf file.)

Before coming to a question of how to deal with multiple pdf files in LISP, the first simple thing I just wanted to do is 'running pdfimport command using lisp'.

However, the problem I encountered is that I cannot give the pdf file path by using 'getfiled' function in LISP!!!
I tried to use 'getfiled' to get the pdf file path and used that with the 'pdfimport' but it keeps asking me for the file path by the file selecting dialog window.

Can anyone tell me how I can use getfiled and pdfimport together?

Thanks

You are right, the old version used PDFATTACH by mistake - it has been fixed now.

Thanks for such a quick response.

I found that the mpdfimport LISP is updated, but I cannot figure out how I can use the pdfimport function in it.

It asks keyword of either 'Attach' or 'Import'.
And when I enter 'Import', it askes for pdf file path again for every loops in while statement.

Would you please have a look into the script again?

Thank you very much.

It works fine here. Are there any error messages in the command line? This is mine:

Command: (LOAD "K:/mpdfimport.lsp") C:MPDFIMPORT
Command: MPDFIMPORT
Initial insertion point:
Page cell width <A4/Letter>:
Start page <1>: 2
End page <999>: 4
Import or attach [Import/Attach] <Import>: I

Import stránky 4 ze souboru PDF: Transformace v MAP.pdf...
