Can't paste from InDesign to Illustrator, however, vice-versa works fine.

Suddenly the most simple copy and paste will not work from indesign into illustrator.

It will work the other way (can copy/paste) from illustrator to indesign.

Item a simple vector box (or anything else for that matter).

Drag and drop, also not working.

Literally NO paste option available in illustrator.

I restarted with new preferences.

I changed preference to switch off the SVG as per some other posts.

Still not working.

Making things very difficult for me, as that's something I usually do, with NO issues every few minutes.

Please help!!

Mojave 10.14.4

Indesign (creative cloud) 14.0.2

Illustrator (cc) 23.0.3

In InDesign, choose Preferences Clipboard Handling. Is Copy PDF to Clipboard enabled?

Did you try a computer restart as well as the applications?

If it continues not working, a (short- or long-term)) solution might be to transfer assets through CC Libraries. Objects can be linked or embedded.

Not that I know of. I assume that'd be something I'd install independently?

Hi Rachel,

Thanks for the detailed information. I understand that copy-paste from Illustrator to InDesign works, however, vice-versa it doesn't. That definitely sounds unusual. I would request if you can check a few things and share results with us.

  • Try turning off GPU performance in Illustrator Preferences ( Go to Illustrator > Preferences > Performance and uncheck GPU performance).
