Sep 30, 2009 10:30 AM

Has anyone heard if you can open a multipage pdf as a multipage illustrator file? Even if the pdf was not created in illustrator.

    I may be wrong but:

     

    1. Until CS4, Illustrator did not support multipage docs. Whether CS4 can support a multi-page pdf is open to creation of the pdf.

     

    Just checked, opening a multi-page pdf, it asks you which page... Caveat: the file was created from AI CS3.

    No, even in CS4 PDFs will be opened as single page AI files. A script exists somewhere, that incrementally extracts al lthe pages and adds new artborads for them, though.

    In case no one mentioned it the answer is no!

     

    But it is a great feature request!
