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.
