Hi there,

 

Thanks for updating us with the solution. It could be a file specific issue. If you have this happening with multiple files, try resetting the Adobe Illustrator preferences. Hope this helps.

 

**Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

This is now a recurring issue.

Again, pasting from Ilustrator shows bounding with no contents.

I'm having the same issue and can't figure out a fix. Anyone have anything that actually fixes this issue? All software (Photoshop 23.1, Illustrator 26.0.2) is up to date, preferences reset.... help! This is driving me nuts and I can't get my work done.

I'm in the same boat. Empty bounding boxes when pasting to Photoshop. All software up to date.

This just started happening to me too. Seems like it's been a recurring issue over many versions for the past few years. Think they would have done something about it by now.
I found that I can paste it into InDesign and then copy and paste it from InDesign into Photoshop. Kinda dumb, but at least this works.

Hello @WayMagArt,

Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind trying to create a text box in Photoshop first and then pasting it from Illustrator to check if it helps? Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav
