300 resolution PDF import error...can I somehow upload a .odt version of the file?
From my previous posts you may know I am trying to create 48"x60" banners with text and high res images. Basically I am exporting a large 48"x60" .odt (open office) file as a PDF at 300dpi so I can then import it in to GIMP. When I try to import the pdf at 14400 (width), 18000 (height), & 30o resolution I get the following:
------
GIMP Message
Plug-in crashed: "file-pdf.exe"
(C:\Program Files (x86)\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins\file-pdf.exe)

The dying plug-in may have messed up GIMP's internal state. You may want to save your images and restart GIMP to be on the safe side.

Gimp Message
Opening 'C:\Users\DUSTIN\Desktop\WORK\LR2 NO IMAGES.pdf' failed:

Procedure 'file-pdf-load' returned no return values
------------
The printing company is requesting my file be at 300dpi so that is why I am trying to import at 300 resolution. I am guessing this is a bug. My question is can I somehow just open the .odt file in gimp and add my high resolution images to it there? Is there a plug in for .odt in GIMP?

I tried using Scribus and when I import a PDF it jumbles of the text and will not import a .odt file. OpenOffice can't handle the high res files...
