Promblem importing PDF file -
I keep receiving an error message every time I try to import a pdf file. It is quite a large image, but I still don’t understand the reason for rhino not loading the file.
Any input and help will be greatly valued

The message is accurate.
PDF files can contain raster and vector data.
The only data of any use when creating geometry are vectors.

The message means there are no vectors in the PDF file and nothing with which to create curve geometry.

If you want to use the image of the PDF file with the PictureFrame command, you’ll need to take an appropriate resolution screenshot of the PDF and save it as a JPG, PNG, BMP, or other neutral raster file format image tile.
Then use the PictureFrame command to create a rectangular surface that has the image attached to it as a color texture. They you’ll be able to see it in Rhino.
