    Question on PDF files with linked images (not embedded) between Reader and Illustrator

    Screen Name 1138 Community Member

      I run into situations when I get customer PDFs that need to be edited. When they load in Acrobat Reader it works fine. However if I load it into Illustrator it asks me to point it to the linked file. The question is how does Acrobat Reader open a PDF file and show a linked file when it is not embedded? Why can't Illustrator do the same thing?


      This is more of a technical question, but any information would be helpful.  Thanks.
