I have PDF files that I need to open in Illustrator (CS4). When I open it the type is "chunked out" so instead of a paragraph being one block of text it is a bunch of different text paths. Is there a way to combine these into one text block so I can edit the type instead of resetting it?
One method is to Drag-Select the text with the Selection tool and either Cut or Copy. Then with the Text tool drag a new Area Text object and Paste the selected text. I think JET has a script for this but I'll wait for him to direct you.
Bingo! Thanks Larry. I had done it before but couldn't remember how I did it.
