Open a PDF in Illustrator

Besides Acrobat, Illustrator is one of the few software programs that can open and edit PDF files. Go to File>Open and target the PDF file. If it is a multipage document, a dialog will appear that allows you to navigate to the single page you’d like to open. (Unfortunately, you’ll have to base that decision on a pretty small preview window.) If you open a page, edit it, and choose Save in the File menu, it will be saved back as part of the multipage document. To separate the image from the multipage document—converting it into a one-page PDF file—choose Save As from the File menu, rename the file, and click Save.
