Opening PDFs in Illustrator may cause some elements to behave strangely. Text boxes in particular are often affected. Type will many times break into smaller text boxes, with words or individual letters in their own box. This can be very impractical and annoying if you’re trying to make edits to the document.

Below is an example of a PDF that I opened in Illustrator. On the baseline, the tiny blue squares indicate the start of a new text box. In this example the text is broken at at least once per word.

Notice how you can select an individual character or sets of characters and drag them around. Not cool.

If you want to edit the type, you must first combine all of the characters or retype them all. Here’s an easy solution for getting all of those individual letters grouped together.

1. With your selection tool, select all of the characters that you want to combine. Clicking and dragging your cursor over all of the text boxes is an effective way to select all of the characters and words.

Copy them all (Command + C) or Control + C if you’re on a PC.

commandkey  c_key               controlkey  c_key

2. With your type tool, draw a text box

3. With the text box still selected with the type tool, press Apple + V (Control + V)

commandkey1  v_key                  controlkey1  v_key

4. The type will flow itself into this new text box, without all of the awkward breaks.

Helpful Hint: If you’re flowing a LOT of copy, it may not always copy in the correct order. If there are paragraph breaks, try to select one paragraph at a time to copy and paste.

Another Helpful Hint: For illustration purposes only, I have the bounding boxes showing in steps 2 and 3 and hidden in all other examples. If your screen doesn’t look exactly like mine, it may be due to the display of the bounding boxes. To toggle this view go to: View > Show Bounding Box or View > Hide Bounding Box

其實要忘記一些人或事談何簡單
只要放得下
隨時都可以走出自己的道路

人們往往把自己困在回憶裡
卻不願望向未來的自己⋯

只要肯放下
比丟下煙蒂🚬還要簡單得多⋯

We can always walkout from bad memories if we wish to..

歇一歇,回頭看,
原來一起走過的路已經那麼長了⋯⋯
珍惜現在身邊所擁有的
和愛自己的人好好相處
畢竟,世界跑得很快
霎那間 黑髮已成白髮

Keep your heart with beloved person and pet,
Time flies, we wouldn’t have another chance~

每個人都有缺點
也再嘗試一一地更改
世界上本來就沒有十全十美的人
對嗎?

Everybody try to be a perfect human in this world,
do you try your best?

Instead of wishing you were someone else, be proud and happy who you are. You never know who will looking at you and wishing they were you.

別一味去羨慕別人的樣貌或資格,
你永遠不懂還有其他人在悄悄羨慕著你⋯
滿足自己所擁有的一切,
有一天會發現原來自己曾經獲得最美好的~
