Copy link to clipboard
I have loaded a pdf file in the illustrator. I saved it as an ai file. Still it is not possible to work on the text of this pdf file. What do I have to do to make the file workable?
Check out the layers panel, it might be as simple as releasing a lot of clipping masks and ungrouping.
But you probably can't do edit that text at all.
If the text got outlined when making or importing the PDF, then that is that. PDF can contain anything some app writed into it and it has never been meant for editing in the first place.
Thanks for your help. I appreciate that very much.
