When I add a pdf to my Aperture library it only shows the first image, it also displays all the backgrounds as black.

The pdf has 7 small graphics (1024 x 768) all drawings on white backgrounds.


What am I doing wrong?


Many thanks

    This is the one case in Aperture where import by dragging gives more options then using the import window.


    So drag the pdf file onto the Aperture icon and you will be presented with the following window:Screen Shot 2012-06-05 at 11.24.27 .png

    Select either JPG or TIFF if you want the multiple pages in a PDF to be be imported as individual images. If you select PDF only the first page will show in Aperture.

    I managed to get this to work for the first few times but now it always imports without those options, I can't seem to get them back. I just upgraded to v3.4.1 and still no options, is there a plist file I could remove to reset something?
