    Hello,

    has as anyone got any advise on which software to use instead of Microsoft Visio, don't really want to pay £250 of a product I might use once a year


    I only want to be able to import drawings (in pdf format) and mark lighting and switch locations. Would be great if the have the correct symbols for the switches also

    Are they raster or vector based pdf's? If vector use Adobe Illustrator, if raster you're on a hiding to nowhere because they were never meant to be edited. Visio isn't very good for importing pdf drawings or cad drawings for editing so you'd do well to avoid.
