I have a scatter plot that i plotted in R using ggplot2. Graph was saved in pdf using ggsave(). For assembling figures for making a poster and/or publishing I prefer using Adobe Illustrator. Now when I open this graph in Illustrator, each gridline and data point is like a separate vector, it is fantastic to have graphs like this but it really kills my Mac down when I have to move few of these graphs around. Is there a way to merge or combine all these points into one vector.
Sorry if I have posted this in a wrong forum. Cheers!
