  3. Illustrator 27.9 Adobe PDF Preset will match what it was last modified to.

    This seems new to 27.9 and removes confidence in save presets.

    Steps to replicate:
    1) Save file as Adobe PDF format
    2) Select [Smallest File Size] from presets.
    3) Check Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilities (note it now says: [Smallest File Size] (Modified))
    4) Click Save PDF
    5) Save file as Adobe PDF format
    6) Select [Smallest File Size] from presets.

    Notice the Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilities is now selected. Also notice the preset name hasn’t changed to say it's (Modified).

    2022 Mac Studio M1 Max, Illustrator 27.9

  4. Insufficient data for an image

    Saving as .PDF from .AI gives me this warning if I am using any type of image (.JPG, .PSD, .TIFF, .PSB) over 100MBs. When the PDF starts to open in Acrobat the warning comes up.

    Machine: Mac Studio 13.5.1 (22G90)
    Illustrator 27.8.1

    I solved the problem by going back to version 27 and exporting one of the files that I was having issues with.
