Yes, as long as you don't close the file, it doesn't change anything. When you "Save As", it's essentially saving a copy while maintaining the file that is currently open. So you are good there.Following my question above. I've ran some tests doing this :
- saving a native AI file as a PDF/X-1
- then saving the same file as a native AI file again
(keeping the file open the whole time)
As far as I can tell, as long as the file stays open in AI, it remains as a native AI file, even though I've saved it as a PDF/X-1 along the way.
If anyone can confirm this, I'd like to make sure there is no loss of anything if I do that.
