    There is no true PDF Export in Illustrator, because Illustrator allows to have editable PDFs with .ai-content stored within. Other apps does not allow that, and some users heavily rely on editable PDFs.

    Attemps to solve this were made, but there is no clear solution so far. Still we hope to find one.

    The intended way to get a PDF (without loosing your data) at the moment would be to use Save a Copy command that saves a separate copy of your file to PDF instead of Save As which keeps a saved file open.

    Why can’t the devs just copy the export pdf menu as it is in InDesign? From Egor’s response to our request I think it’s painfully clear that the devs DO NOT understand what it’s like to be a pro user who has to deal with this limitation on a daily basis.

    I've lost many billable hours having to recreate an Illustrator file that I mistakenly "Saved As...PDF" because Illustrator does not have this feature, but InDesign does.

    Yes! This is my most desired request!!! Save As PDF in Illustrator will resave the file as a pdf, but then you have to save it again as an Illustrator document, which can cause a user to lose changes if they forget this step. T
