    Pasting from Illustrator: EPS import configuration error

    Graham vdR Level 1

      I’m trying to copy some simple vector paths from an open Illustrator document into an InDesign one. I’m getting the error message “EPS Import: Configuration error”.

       

      I know I have been able to do this successfully in the past, and even earlier today. The action that seems to have broken it was trying to paste a selection containing 808 circle paths. I got a message saying that it was a complex shape and would be pasted as an embedded EPS, I think. I’ve seen this before so it wasn’t a surprise. But since then I haven’t been able to paste even simple single rectangles. I’ve tried restarting InDesign and Illustrator and even tried a system reboot.

       

      I’d appreciate any suggestions or pointers.

       

      I’m using CS4 on a 32 bit Windows 7 installation.
