All of a sudden I cannot place a PSD file into Adobe illustrator? When I drag it in nothing happens. If I use the menu and try to place one nothing happens. If I open up an old file that use to work fine the images now don't appear and just show X'd boxes in keyline view as if the linkage is broken but it's not?
I have no clue what to do now? Anyone run into this before? Very frustrating.
OK, I managed to figure out what caused this.
Font Explorer X just released their auto activate plugin (version 3.5.0) for CS5 and CS6 Ai. If installed you won't be able to place PSD files. And files with placed PSD will not display them.
Once I uninstalled the plugin everything worked as it should. You'd think they'd test this stuff better that is a basic functionality.
Yes this has been posted on this forum before, I wish such an issue would be posted at a top of the forum to help users like yourself avoid the worries.
But I am glad you found the problem.
BTW I understand Linotype is looking into the issue which shows they have good intentions.
