layered PDF and Illustrator

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

It turns out that Adobe Illustrator can handle the layered PDF documents - at least CS4 can.

Here is how to get to the layers:

The layered PDF should just be opened in Adobe Illustrator (CS4).

At this point it only shows one layer

Now in Adobe Illustrator activate the menu in the layer window (top right corner) and click on "Release To Layers (Sequence)"

This will "create" layers from the layered PDF.
