Illustrator is not a general purpose PDF editor. And PDF was never meant for editing. It's a presentation/production format. The only thing you can do is place/Link the PDF. That should work. Please don't attach images. Embed them in your posts instead.

Thank  you Monika,

I know, I was just wondering because that never happened before in older versions. I don't really edit my pdfs in Illustrator. Just in this particular case I tried to open it because PS only showed a blank canvas when opening that pdf (originally exported from XD) The export quality of jpgs/ pngs from XD is so bad, that I usually export pdfs, than open them in PS and then save them as png. Works great usually. Just not this time. May be it/s an XD export issue after all. I should probably post that question in the XD forum too.
