I have a grouping issue with illustrator. It made everything into one single layer as I saved it last night. I have restarted my computer already and opened a different PDF like one of the agents told me to do yesterday. The file I need to work with will not allow me to separate the layers it is supposed to have. How can I separate them so I coud conttinure my project?  It is a college project I have been working on for several days. Please help!

If elements are "grouped into one layer" after re-opening a file, this points to several possible issues:

1. you saved a PDF and didn't check the "Illustrator editable" option

2. you opened an AI file with a lower version of Illustrator

3. Your file went corrupt

Ashutosh,

 

Honestly, I am not quite sure whether the answer helped or not. I ended up having to take a screen shot of it to show my professor what I WAS working on, but I had to delete the file as it was giving me so many issues. My guess is the file became corrupted, but I am very new to the program, so it could also have been that I clicked on the wrong thing before saving it. I will try to use it again sometime, and hopefully the turnout will be much better. Thank you to you and Monika for your help.
