I am using Illustrator CS6 on windows 7. I created a document on Illustrator CS4 on mac osx and exported the file to a pdf. Now when I want to edit the pdf in illustrator the images and drawings display correctly, but only certain text is shown. Not any text in particular, but just random lines of text within paragraphs. The rest of the text does not show up at all. What could be the issue?
What exactly do you save?
Please read this before discussing further: http://rwillustrator.blogspot.de/2006/11/whats-in-file.html
It was saved with the illustrator editability on. I can edit the pdf in illustrator, just certain chunks of text don't show up when I open it in illustrator. I could just copy and paste the text into illustrator, but I would like to see where I went wrong.
Why not open the AI file?
In any case, as Monika points out, the PDF really needs to eb created with the AI editing capability turned on. That way, AI is opening the AI data contained in the PDF, not the PDF data.
Take care, Mike
***Oops, cross-post. I see you did preserve the AI data now.***
