    Hello,
    I need to manipulate a PDF in illy. I have placed it, flattened it, rasterized it, and to no avail. Is what I need to do even possible? Any feedback is appericiated.

    Sounds like the elements were flattened prior to it getting to you. If in outline mode you don't see any vector elements, you have nothing to work with.

    Be more specific. What do you want to manipulate? Do not rasterize, that turns it into pixels which is not vector

    If the PDF is originally from a pixel file you will not be able to do any editing in Illustrator. Play around with it in Photoshop if its only text you will be changin.

    If it is a vector file, when you click "Place" and it wants to know which file to place, in the bottom left corner there are 2 boxes: Link and Template. Make sure Link is checked and not template.

    After you find the file, a Place PDF window pops up. I like "Art" for the Crop To option. Maybe mess around with that.

    I believe it is flattened already. Thank you all so much.
