Does anyone know if you can import a Geospatial PDF into Adobe Illustrator to refine the graphics and text, and then export it back out with georeferencing intact so that it could be used by Avenza? ….Without purchasing Mapublisher.
Thank you for your post. Unfortunately, the only way to maintain referencing within Illustrator is to have the MAPublisher plugin, as by importing into Illustrator directly and re-saving will remove the referencing completely.
If you have any further questions about this process, please feel free to reach out to us via the form at help.avenza.com
Adobe released an update to Illustrator 2021 (v25.3) that includes native support for M1 Devices and Rotate Artboard functionality. Please note these features are not yet supported within MAPublisher at this time. See compatibility notes.
