We are trying to import some foreign language words (Chinese, Hebrew, etc.) from Macintosh Pages into Illustrator, and when we copy and paste into Illustrator, it does not read -- it shows up simply as a big X.
Is there a way around this? We need to know this before we can make sure this upgrade will work for us.
The only thing you need is to install the complete sets of fonts for each language.
You can download official fonts from different languages here:
Make sure the fonts are active, re-start illustrator and that will solve the problem.
I hope this helps!
Well, the fonts are installed because they show up in Pages. Illustrator is not reading them.
Before you paste you have to have the font selected pasting without selecting the font will only paste the text in the current font which clearly do not have corresponding letters.
