Because Illustrator doesn't export/publish/create I have ended up accidentally losing data. I want a way to create a PDF from an AI without the file I'm editing transitioning to the new PDF. Many times I have saved a PDF without editing ability, with compressed images, or with some other settings I don't want in a working document, then accidentally continue editing the document. Later I find that I have two files. An AI file from early inn the design process and a PDF from the final that is not useful because it's the altered, out going, non-working document.
Just adding PDF to the Export would save me.Kirk supported this idea ·
