When I try to add an image (PDF) I get 'Selected file contains too many entities to import'  It is a simple line drawing so not sure what I have done to have too many entities.  Any Ideas?  Also I thought you could add JPGs but that option does not show for me.
Thanks for any assistance.

    @peter_campbell186 Are you getting this message when importing the PDF into the Document?  Or inserting it into a sketch? You can import any files into a Document, but you can only insert DXF, DWG, and image files (bmp, jpeg, png,etc.) into sketches.  PDF's cannot be inserted into a sketch.
