Hi,

 

I am a college student. Currently I submitted an Adobe PDF (exported from Adobe Illustrator 2022) and Turnitin (a popular app to check plagiarism) cannot scan the text on my assignment. When I read the requirements, Turnitin said they only accept Adobe PDF from Acrobat. 

 

This is when I turn on Text-only mode on Turnitin.

Then how can I export my Illustrator file as an Acrobat file? Or is there any possible way for me to convert the file to a scannable file for Turnitin?

 

😞 Please help me, my assignment due date is gonna be so soon. Thank you so much!

Copy and paste it to Word. Remake it. (Why use AI for an assignment). Save PDF from Word. 

 

TIP:nobody, NOBODY, makes documents in Acrobat. It has a simple editor for fixing typos. Don't go that way!

Hi,

 

I used AI because my assignment require drawing a map. I also need to put justification in words on that too. That's why I have to use AI 😂

You will probably need to discuss that issue with your teacher or professor.

If you used the default save dialog in AI, then just open the file in Acrobat and save it as a PDF from there.

Perhaps it needs some specific PDF version.

You could try saving it as an X-1, which is kind of a lowest-common-denominator setting for print PDFs.

Is there text in your file or did you outline all the text?

 

Nobody writes an assignment in Illustrator. You just do not do that. If your assignment contains drawings, then you draw those things in Illustrator and write the text in Word and do the layout in InDesign. Or write the thing in InDesign while doing the layout.
