Hi

 

Bridge is successfully placing images into Photoshop and indesign, but not illustrator. When I select "Place in Illustrator" nothing happens. Please advise.

 

Thanks!

    Then you should provide more details about OS and CS version. Did it work before and what filetypes are you trying to place?

     

    If you have same CS version for PS, InDesign and Illustrator it should work without problems.

    Also, if I select "Place..." from the file menu within illustrator, it opens the system browser and the photos place perfectly well.

     

    This indicates to the Illustrator Start up script not functioning. First check Bridge Preferences Start Up scripts if the Illustrator script is showing and if there is a check mark in front. If not checked check it, if not present at all restart Bridge holding down control key and choose 'reset preferences', this usually recreates the start up scripts in a correct way.

    Any other suggestions? Illustrator is the only program bridge won't place into.

     

     

    I'm afraid not, I use a Mac so I can't test this, maybe drop this question in the Illustrator forum, it is more likely to find someone to test for same behavior there I would think.
