Well, you might have told me how. It's just taken me 30 seconds to work it out ... Object>Flatten transparency first, then it works. Perhaps it's time to buy a manual for CS2 -- all this trial and error stuff is doing my head in ;)
Uhm, that is just because I have never edited a PDF with transparency in CS2, so I did not know about that option! Thanks for letting us know about it, though, for future reference... :)
Neither have I, knowingly that is ... Whenever I export files from AW2 to Illustrator, they invariably contain hatch fills.
Hatch fills are exported as individual shapes, so they are irrelevant.
I wouldn't have expected the "flatten transparency" option in CS2 to apply. However, this seems to be the only way I can make an AW2 PDF editable in Illustrator. Perhaps Martin can offer an explanation?
Sorry, I have never even seen Illustrator CS2.> Martin
