Why is it that when I import a pdf almost always the radius on the corner of the part is not connected?
Just wander if there is a setting to fix that or if there is something else. The pdfs are editable.

I think it is mostly rounding errors in how the endpoints of the lines and arcs of the PDF are created.  There isn't enough precision in the pdf code to make them perfect and when Enroute imports it, rather than guessing it leaves the errors open, for you to fix.  Running a Merge Selection in Enroute, with the appropriate tolerances (usually 0.01 or so) quickly cleans up the mess.

I guess some sort of bypass solution for that thing is to do some rotation of the pdf before importing. At least it works in my case, but I'm also working with one or two PDF files per session and nothing more than. There are dozens of the tools providing this feature, I use this one for example https://www.altorotatepdf.com/ because it's fast and simple, you might well use anything else. Hope this would come in use to somebody who will be wandering through this thread
