I've received a .pdf from someone else that I need to modify slightly in Illustrator. Typically when I want to edit a pdf, I can just drag or place it into Illustrator, click embed, and then edit away. With this particular pdf, something strange happens: when I drag the file (without embedding) onto an art board, I can see everything in the pdf and it looks fine
Then, if I embed it, I lose data (I know the fonts might be hard to recover, but my main concern is losing the images...):
Any help would be appreciated, running CS6 on Mac OSX.
