Question
Hi Kevin,

I have high res 2 page pdf document made with illustrator and I wish to make a low res document but by keeping it in 2 page. Everytime I try, it convert it into a one page only. How do I do it?

Thanks

Answer
Hi Melanie

Sorry for the delay I never saw the original question

From AI go to Save As, then choose PDF. Inside the PDF dialog box, go to the top to presets and choose "smallest file size".

That's it! As long as your work is on two art boards it will be two pages.


Thanks

Kevin
