When opening a PDF in Illustrator, the text gets all messed up. Every line becomes its own paragraph, making it very difficult to edit because I have to edit every single line individually. Is there a way to get these to all become one paragraph again like it was in the original file? (P.s The original was created in illy, converted to a PDF, and now being worked on in illy again.) I am working in CS6.
gave you 2 solutions, casue have not done this for awhile, and forgot waht was nto perfect about the script.
That’s what happens to text when you make a pdf. it breaks up into loose lines.
Always keep an .ai original so that you don’t have to convert back to Illie.
You can use Mike’s method(s) or copy the text into a new text box and then do a text search for carriage returns, replacing them with word spaces.
