save each page as a seperate PDF file from "save as" under illustrator.
Isn't that a lot less efficient than Distiller? I mean, you have *very* few options for adjusting the compression, etc. In my experience, save as produces much bigger files than Distiller - but then, maybe I just don't know how to use Illustrator well enough! Also, saving text as paths makes for a pretty hefty file-size increase!
Thanks for confirming the one-page-per-file question. I really can't figure out how this designer made a two-page acrobat file from an Illustrator file that includes both pages side-by-side!
