Why am I getting a white box around image dragged from AI?

Feb 21, 2013 2:39 PM



I've read the threads here about import options and selecting transparent bg for AI files.


But I am using an AI file as a source that has lots of elements that I'd like to drag/copy-paste into ID individually.  When I do this the image gains a white box.


I've tried the clipping path/options route.  It is not available as a choice.


Will I be forced to create many new AI files of each individual object that I want in my ID layout and then import?


Hoping not.


Thanks in advance,

    Hello John,


    What is the content of the AI files--vector, vector with bitmap effects, a mix of vector and bitmap elements?


    Have you tried saving the AI file and placing it?
