Programs used to perform the conversion from pdf file to jef format.

Creating embroidery designs (like the JEF for Janome machines) from PDF sources seems somewhat odd, however possible, if the .pdf file in question some kind of graphics, preferably vector based image. This is typically the case for graphics exported from some vector graphics program, such as Adobe Illustrator.

If this is also your case, the best course of action would be to convert pdf to svg or back to AI (Illustrator graphics) and then convert that resulting file to JEF, or any related embroidery format which could then be converted to JEF.

Should the .pdf document contain raster image, you can also achieve this, but the end result may be a little worse as it is generally harder to create embroidery design from raster graphics.
