I can't modify embedded PDFs in Designer 2.0.4 and Publisher 2.0.4. Has worked before. Running on an iMac M1.

1) Embed a PDF into a new document

2) Double click embedded pdf to modify

3) Change something. For instance, change color of a line, hide a layer, etc. Nothing actually changes. Also, Find in Layers Panel does nothing.

Note in the screenshots how the title should be hidden, and one of the "80"s should be purple.

Opening the same PDF directly in Designer instead of embedding works.

This issue has been addressed in the latest 2.1 beta if you would like to test this and let us know if you are still having this issue.

Hi @DWright, sadly not working in the 2.1 beta release, I've literally just filed a bug report as request by @Pauls...  changing the colour of an item is reflected on the canvas but is in the layers panel, hiding a layer and find in layers panel aren't...
