Technical Details Earlier versions of the AI format are restricted syntax that conform to DSC's Open Structuring Conventions. It was originally a native format called PGF. In order to make PDF files compatible can be achieved by embedding the PGF data within the saved PDF file. This same technique is used when saving EPS compatible files in recent versions of Illustrator.

Category Document File
Description PDF is a file format developed by Adobe Systems for representing documents in a manner that is separate from the original operating system, application or hardware from where it was originally created. A PDF file can be any length, contain any number of fonts and images and is designed to enable the creation and transfer of printer-ready output.

Technical Details Each PDF file encapsulates a complete description of a 2D document (and, with the advent of Acrobat 3D, embedded 3D documents) that includes the text, fonts, images and 2D vector graphics that compose the document. They do not encode information that is specific to the application software, hardware, or operating system used to create or view the document.
