I have been tasked with updating a poster that the client used last year. Should be fairly simple, just edit the file, change the date and shrink it from A2 to A3. But I only have the pdf that was sent to print to work with. This pdf has embedded images. They show up fine when viewed with a normal pdf viewer, but Illustrator insists on using the linked files, which I dont have access to.
How can I make illustrator use the result of the linked images from the pdf, rather than trying to use the original files and applying the transformations to them?
Illustrator from CS6 btw.
