Looks like Illustrator opened only the PDF part of the file, which won't contain stuff outside of artboards.
This might happen when files go corrupt.
Where did you save the file?
I see. File corruption would make the most sense to me. I saved it on my computer within a client file, which also syncs with a google drive account.
Synched folders might cause issues like this one. Didn't happen for the first time.
Got it. Yeah, first time this has happened for me, but good to know. Thanks for your help!
