Saving Ai files as editable pdf?
Sounds simple, but it's giving me a headache, I'm able to save the file and open it in Adobe acrobat pro dc, and edit the text but my client is asking for the logo symbol, to still be editable for them. Adobe acrobat shows it as a picture above the editable text, but now it won't allow a simple color change to the part of the picture he want's editable. Is there a way to keep the photo editable, since my client doesn't have illustrator?
"Saving as editable PDF" in Illustrator means that Illustrator embeds the ai file when it creates the PDF, so that it can reuse it. This does, of course, bloat the PDFâ€¦Â and it requires Illustrator for editing.
Acrobat does not have the capability to edit vector graphics; it does need a helper for that (such as Illustrator). Acrobat DC is quite good with text (much better than older versions), and has some raster image modification capabilities.
