Unfortunately, the only version that supports pasting from Illustrator into Edge Animate CC 2014, is Illustrator CC 2014. At least that is my understanding. I can confirm that works, as I am using the AI CC 2014 version.
Hi, Illustrator CS6 and below does not have clipboard support for SVG. The clipboard support for SVG was added in Illustrator only in Illustrator CC version. The copy and paste feature was added in Edge Animate CC 2014 version.
- For all non-text vector content: You can copy artwork from Ilustrator CC and higher and paste to Edge CC 2014(June release).
- For content having text: You can copy text artwork from Illustrator CC 2014(June release) and paste to Edge CC 2014(June release).
Hope this helps
Thanks very much for your collective helps guys - much appreciated!
