Using PDF output


I have tried several times to produce PDF output and found that each time the result was nothing more than a pixel based image embedded within a PDF file. The way i tested it was to bring the PDF into Adobe Illustrator which supports PDF format. In fact AI files are PDF files. Yet all i got was a single image whose "components" were not editable. The site claims that the generated PDF files are scalable vectors, yet i find they are not editable in AI. If the test i'm doing is wrong, can someone share with me an appropriate validation of PDF output?

I am providing a sample cdy and pdf file that shows the resulting pdf remains as a single object. I tried "expand" followed by "ungroup" using CS6 to no avail.

jcfried,

indeed I am able to edit files in AI. You have to use the direct selection tool (sorry, my Illustrator version runs in German, it is called Direktauswahl-Werkzeug? there, with shortcut A), not the selection tool, though. The file scales to any size. Can you post an example output file here for me to check what is going wrong?
