I've used earlier version of Adove Illustrator without any problem, but once I start trying CS6, I cannot copy a graph that I inserted from GraphPad to Microsoft PowerPoint. I converted GraphPad file from version 6 to version 5 and then some of file can be copied & pasted to Illustrator Artboard. Most of them cannot be copied properly. It shows only axis title with empty box way far away from Artboard. Can anyone has seen same problem to this?
Please, help me!!!
Lately I have been finding that copy/pasting between microsoft and adobe apps are bitmapped instead of vector paths. The only solution I have found so far is to export to a file, pdf seams to work just fine, but I don't recall if powerpoint supports pdf or not, but if you have acrobat installed, then it it should be available.
Thank you for responding my quetion.
I finally figured it out after trying this and that.
The new version of Illustrator CS6 is different from the earlier version in terms of file type recognition. The earlier version of Illustrator can copy anything into Artboard, but this new version need export vector file as a window metafile (WMF), enhanced metafile (EMF), or enhanced metafile plus (EMF +) from the original software (if this option is available) to PowerPoint, and then it can be copied to Illustrator CS6 Artboard that recognize this exported graph as a vector file, not an image file so that you can edit individual line and dots as usual in the earlier version.
It works beautifully!
I hope this could help one has same problem to me.
I was able to copy from powerpoint 2008 on mac and paste into AICS6 mac. I get vector graphs when the graphs have shading limited to a gradient, but get bitmapped graphs on the 2nd tubular one for example below. The default font calibri also give me !#$, btu that is fixed by changing the font in powerpoint.
I do not get to work much with graphs, but wanted to add what I found incase this post helps anyone.
