How do I create a multi paged pdf from Illustrator with different layers lighted on each page?


Question

The question is pretty much in the title. I would like to have the same artboard in illustrator as three different pages in a pdf-file, each page should have different layers visible. Is this possible to create automatically? How?

Accepted Answer

If I'm understanding what you want, I think the quickest way is to just make 3 separate PDFs from your .ai file, with the desired layers showing in each. Then combine the 3 files into one PDF using Acrobat Pro.

Edit: As for "automatically", not sure there's a way to automate this process, because saving a PDF (or jpg) with "Use Artboards" checked will still just create separate files from each artboard.
