Hi there.. Is there a way of combining individual text boxes into one text box in Illustrator (25.2)? Have to edit a file from PDF format and some of the text boxes split up after opening. Thanks!

You just imported the PDF and did not change anything in the stacking order of those text object? Select all the text objects and copy them. With the text tool draw an area text (a rectangle). The cursor should now be blinking in the text object. Edit > Paste.

I just opened the PDF (File > Open) and no, I didn't change the stacking order.

Thank you, this solution worked perfectly.
