I am editing a multi page pdf. I am doing the following:

  1. Open the Pdf
  2. Enter a page # in the Range box (2 for example)
  3. change something.
  4. Save

The resulting pdf only has the page I was working on (Page 2) and all the other pages are gone. I know this wasn't always the case, I've definitely gone and edited each page of a PDF in the past. What setting have I managed to change that it's removing all the other pages when I save? I've tried this in Ilustrator 2019 and 2020 with the same results.

In order to do a round trip the PDF must be saved with Illustrator Editing enabled.

I am working on a PDF which was created from Word via Acrobat Pro. There isn't any option in that workflow to enable Illustrator Editing.

Do you still have the original file? Can you use the saved copy of the changes to replace the same page in the original?
