    Acrobat pdf text dimensions added disappear

    PopBob Level 1


      A pdf layout had dimensions and arrows added to it...but when that pdf is dragged to or opened in Illustrator, all the text and arrows vanish.  I've tried various export options...but to no avail.  I'm at my wits' end as to why. 


      Any thoughts anyone?


      thanks!! Bob

          Hi Bob,


          As per the issue description mentioned above, dimensions added on the pdf are not visible when dragging pdf in Illustrator, is that correct?


          Could you try printing the pdf file to Adobe PDF printer in Acrobat and then try dragging it in Illustrator and check?

          I would like to add that printing pdf to Adobe PDF printer will flatten the pdf, means you won't be able to interact with the dimensions added on the pdf.
