I tried submitting this through https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform but as usual it gave me a generic error when I hit send. Who knows if anyone's listening there anyway.
I have Flash CS6 and am working with an artist who has Flash CC6. I can't copy symbols from the files he sends me.
Steps to reproduce bug:
1. Open this file in Flash Pro CS6: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rqnwx2itn3m2ilj/Game%20Store.fla
4. Create a new blank FLA
Results: Only part of the object is pasted
Expected results: All of the object should appear
Workaround: If I first "save down" the files he sends me to CS6 or earlier format then reopen them, the copypaste bug goes away. Distressingly, this feature has been removed from CC6, but luckily it is still present in CS6.
This is a known issue and is happening due to the characters '<>' present in your symbol names.
Please find more details/workaround about this problem here : http://nipunasthana.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/flash-cc-cs6-compatibility/
+You can also try the attached file with the removed incompatible characters from your file.
Aha, yes, this is exactly it, and the fixed file works! I noticed those weird special characters from Illustrator but there were too many to rename. Your extension should come in useful if I can get my artist to use it.
But I guess I'll have to upgrade to CC since this sort of thing just keeps happening with CS6 (which I bought just a few months ago... my fault for wanting to own software instead of renting it). You win again Adobe!
