I just upgraded to CS4 and can no longer figure out how to create a multi-page pdf from Illustrator. The option has either been removed or moved from the pdf save menu.
I'm currently saving down to CS3, and opening again in CS4 to create legacy artboards which then translate into multi pages in acrobat. I'm sure there is an easier/more efficient way. Does anyone know?
Thanks for your reply. This solution did work for me, but I may be going about it the wrong way. I went into Document Setup and created a new artboard for each page in the pdf. This can be really time consuming in a large document. Is there an easier way to turn each page into an artboard?
Thanks for your reply. I think we might be working with the same solution here...I only get the "convert to artboards" menu when I'm opening a CS3 file into CS4. If the file originates in CS4, this menu doesn't appear -- that's where I'm getting stuck.
I've learned a lot about artboards since this morning! It seems like the 2 easiest ways of creating multi-page pdfs are:
1) setting up the artboards at the very beginning, in the "new document" menu or;
2) creating rectangles and converting to artboards (this works better when additional pages will be added to the layout at a later point.)
When saving as a pdf, make sure that "use artboards" and "all" are selected.
I hope this is helpful to others -- after googling this issue I realized how many people are just as confused as I was.
Thanks for all your help!
