Hello designers,

Quick questions about the "Export for Screens" or the other export options in Illustrator v24

 

I've got my resume / CV designed on two Artboards, each Artboard is one standard A4 page.

I don't really print this for people by I do send it as a PDF attachment in emails and what not.

 

When I export via the "Export for Screens" I can select the PDF format. However, it exports me two files, one for each Artboard. Up to now I've been doing an extra step, of open these in Preview (Apple) to combine the pages into one PDF file.

Is there a way to export my two Artboards directly into a 2 paged PDF?

Ahh, interesting, this is a new feature, no ?
I didn't see that in the older version of AI i was using up to a few weeks ago (I just updated my OS which allowed me to update Photoshop and Illustrator).

Thanks.

Not as far as I am aware. Save As has been the normal route for creating PDFs since at least CS5.

PFD has been a Save As format for as long as I can remember.

I remember native PDF support since Illustrator 9 (2000).

Ton is right about the "native" .pdf support since Illustrator 9, but as far as I understand something (assumed that I do understand anything at all), the native .ai format is still a dialect of Postscript.

 

I may be wrong, of course.

Native PDF support does only mean that Illustrator can create a PDF file without first creating PostScript.

Native PDF support also means that transparency is supported (introduced in CS9), something that was supported in PDF but not in PostScript.

Yes, I think I know that already, Ton.
