The integration between Flash CS3 and Illustrator means you can copy objects from Illustrator to Flash and i think if you copy from Flash to illustrator or Photoshop, you would not get a good results.
You can solve your problem by exporting your Flash work as .AI.
Your idea about the ability to copy from Flash to Illustrator is a good idea although Illustrator can not read some of the Flash imported information correctly. But it is still a good enahcement idea. There is a link where you can add suggestions but I do not remember it and I am replying using mobile, so my browsing capabilities is limited.
I will try to post the link here when I got to my back normal connection
What I don't understand is why, if it worked fine in MX 2004, it doesn't work at all in 8 or any subsequent version. In fact, I can copy from CS3 into MX 2004 and then copy from there to Illustrator and the results look fine. Why would such a fundamental feature be debilitated like that?
And besides, is it really that uncommon to copy from Flash to Illustrator? I use it all the time to take advantage of Illustrator's superior manipulations on existing flash symbols (e.g. to create arm bends with Illustrator art brushes).
At least in CS4 you can save as .ai format… but your colors get converted (badly) to CMYK… but at least you can save as .ai.
