I'm running ArcMap 10.3 and there is no "From PDF" toolset available in my conversion tools list. Also, trying to use the ArcPy PDFToTIFF_conversion method fails.

"From PDF" missing

Specifically ArcMap is version

Python is version 2.7.8 (downloaded & installed from my esri portal)

I think my version upgrades on this machine have gone from 10.1 > 10.2.2 > 10.3. I do not have ArcGIS Pro installed, just ArcMap 10.3 Basic.

Am I missing something, does anyone have any idea on what to check or look for?

Edit: found the install folder and it looks like I might be running 10.3 prerelease. I am going to reinstall 10.3 and see what happens.

  • You're absolutely certain you're on 10.3? Per the what's new, the tool was installed in 10.3: desktop.arcgis.com/en/desktop/latest/main/get-started/…

  • Thanks, yeah I am. Added another screenshot. I actually think its the difference in 10.3 prerelease and the true release. I'll update either way.

  • Yeah, I think you're on pre-release. I see 4322 is final # for 10.3
