Save space when saving Illustrator Files
Authored by: maximxygo on Feb 21, '04 02:58:24PM

Keep in mind, though, that for compatibility with other Adobe products (InDesign 2 or later, and Photoshop 6 or later, most notably) you should leave the PDF compatability on. What the PDF compat. gets you is the ability to open and view Illustrator files with Panther's Preview app, view a placed Illustrator document in InDesign, and place an Illustrator document in Photoshop. Without that option on, you cannot use that peticular document in other Adobe apps.

It appears that Illustrator actually embeds a PDF preview with text explaining this when you disable the PDF Compatability option and try placing the resultant PDF document in another app (try it with Preview).
