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 groove25, but I'm not even sure how I can uninstall Quicktime from my Mac, as Apple won't allow it.
More details on my issue: I tried installing CC on my iMac (before I was trying to get it to work on my newly purchsed MacBookPro), and I still get the same error. I've tried several times to reinstall it to but the bug won't go away. This pretty much renders fireworks useless to me, and that's a huge dissappointment considering how expensive it is.
So I've discovered that it must be a clipboard issue in Illustrator. I can actually drag and drop (not copy paste for some reason) vector shapes from Illustrator to Fireworks several times before I get the dreaded error. If I accidently press "command+ v" then I will get the error and not even be able to drag and drop any longer. In either case I have to exit out of Illustrator in order to get the popup with the "clear clipboard" checkmark, which I then have to select before restarting the program. I tried to find a way to clear clipboard in Illustrator without having to exit out of it, but had no luck. All of this is extremely frustrating, especially for the price that CC costs, but at least I'm able get it to work for a while.
Hope this helps and please let me know if you find any other solutions to this issue...
