I've been having an issue with Adobe CC Fireworks. Every time I try to copy a vector shape or an image from illustrator and paste it to fireworks, I get this error: " Alert can't open the illustration". I am running OS 10.8.4. Has anyone else experienced this issue? Thanks in advance.

    The following post offers a workaround/fix for Fireworks CS6 users having trouble opening or importing Illustrator files on the Windows 7 platform. I'm not sure if this applies to you or not:

    Thanks for your reply.

    I simply deleted CC and using CS6. I have done the same with other CC apps that simply do not offer anything new accept headaches and frustration.

    I tried the drag and drop and it didn't work for me.

     

    The only thing that worked was saving as EPS. Just remember to select the EPS version CS6 or earlier, because the EPS CC won't work either.

    Save the illustrator file as Illustrator CS6 file, and then open it with fireworks, works perfectly
