Perhaps you are just not navigating to the correct file when opening in illustrator.
I have downloaded my resume from my web site, it is the only copy on my work computer.
Do you have any hidden layers with old info from old resumé?
No, It's just one big text box with all my information in it.
If you saved the .pdf with "Illustrator editing capabilities" checked, then there is, within the .pdf, essentially a complete .ai file. It's nutty, I know. But at any rate, they should be identical... No reason that the pdf should be more up to date than the embedded .ai info. If they are, try doing a "save-as", which will do a more thorough flushing of older info than a "save"
If you're only the .pdf of your resume for people to snab off a website, there's no need to check that box though. It'll embiggen your file for no reason.
The other thing is that if you embedded fonts in your pdf, Illustrator can't respect them. It's a licensing thing. If the "information change" you're seeing is a font change, rest easy that it'll look the same in acrobat for you as it will for your potential employer. The fonts will work in acrobat. If you need it to open in Illustrator, you'll have to have the fonts available on the machine you open it on.
Hey Jesseham, good to see you again. When I created the file with Illy and saved it as a PDF, I believe I saved it with Illustrator editing capabilities enabled. Just in case I needed to update it. Which I do now. When I saved it out originally I did do a "Save As", you have to. When I open the PDF in Illy the fonts are the same, I used Verdana so thats not the issue. Keep the ideas coming guys, this is a head scratcher.
Well I do not know why this happen or how to fix it thought I believe there is a way of correcting this but I unfortunatey do not recall the method.
However I can be of some assistance.
Since it is only one text box this may or may not work while retaining the format open the pdf in Illustrator. draw a new text box the same as the one you have and the select all the text and paste it into the new text frame. The text will not be chopped apart but the formatting might be gone. That is paragraphs line breaks etc.
If that happens you can cut and paste sections a well using the lasso tool and that way you can paste paragraph by paragraph the text and the text wil flow as one text string.
You can create a paragraph style as well to make this easier.
Hope this help or gives you an idea on how to fix this.
Oh, yes one more you can do this copy and pasting with the AI file that has the wrong versions and resaving that with a different name.
This might sound funny but I think that what I just wrote might be part of fixing the the damaged AI file did you try doing a save as with a different name?
