    Pasting paths from InDesign to Illustrator

    tmgstudio

      Since we upgraded from CS3 to CS5, copying and pasting paths between InDesign and Illustrator seems to be a one-way road.

       

      Any idea why I can't copy a path created in InDesign and paste it into Illustrator anymore?

          Before copying from InDesign to Illustrator, make sure in Clipboard Handling Preferences that Copy PDF to Clipboard is selected. Copy to the Clipboard.

           

          In Illustrator, paste.

           

          When you chose the object, it shows Group at the left side of Illustrator's Control panel. The PDF object has a clipping mask. While still selected, choose Object > Clipping Path > Release. Now it's an editable path.
