Hi

I opened a file from Adobe Illustrator. Is it true that you can't change the text. For me, the individual letters are simply individual graphic characters, but not coherent text.

Thanks for an answer.

Hi PhoDesPub :)

What import settings did you use please? When importing an .AI file we read the PDF stream, meaning you should see the PDF import dialogue before your document opens.

Have you tried changing the text settings here?

Sorry to bring up a old thread, but with adobe CC and my one page PDF i do not get the prompt about grouping lines of text. There is another option or setting for this fix? thanks.

That's an option when you Open a PDF. It is not an option if you Place a PDF.

This thread is about opening a pdf in Affinity Designer that was exported from Illustrator. Not a pdf made from an Affinity application and opening it in Illustrator (which is what you are doing). The only option in Illustrator is what you show.
