Improve page selection when opening PDFs in Illustrator
Referring to the attached screenshot for opening PDFs in Illustrator:
I find that I am constantly browsing through the preview pages using (B), and hitting 'Open' when I see the previewed page I want -- completely forgetting to actually enter the page number in the Range (C), and thereby opening Page 1, swearing, and starting again. Casual survey suggests this is a common issue for others in my studio as well.
It would be great if changing the previewed page using B also updated the page number selected in C; or, if an additional radio button sitting with C and D could allow you to select and open 'Previewed Page'. This would make it more consistent with page selection for eg placing a PDF in InDesign using the 'Import Options' dialogue.
Type desired page number into "range" box
Since the latest update that enables opening every page in the PDF in illustrator. The option to select either all pages or single pages, when selecting single page and you navigated to the exact page you want to edit, it will only open the cover page and not the selected page.
My fellow employees and I refuse to upgrade to new Illustrator because we can no longer open a PDF in Illustrator and get anything but page 1. This is a critical part of our workflow, so until you fix it, we wont use it, and urge every other professional we know to resist upgrading.
