Hello, recently Command V stoped working in Illustrator. When I try to copy something from Photoshop, it does just nothing. Any idea how to fix that. Exporting every single little thing as a PNG takes too much time.

Just the shortcut? Or doesn't the menu command work either?

 

When was your last computer reboot? Maybe now would be a good idea?

Do you have anything installed in the system that claims to enhance the clipboard?

Can you try and disable the SVG option from the Illustrator clipboard handling preferences?

I rebooted it now, nothing changed,

I dont have instaled anything like that.

I tried that, nothing changed. 

Its weird because I can copy paste things from Illustrator to Photoshop, but it not works the other way. Today was update, so maybe its that? 
I have one changed shortcut, but that is command X, not Command V.

Then maybe it's time to ask what kind of "something" you copy from Photoshop and from kind of file?

It is .psd file. I made few brush strokes in photoshop and wanted to copy them to illustrator. I can do that, if I export that as a PNG, but that takes long time. Before I was able to copy things to Illustrator easily. Illustrator is better for work, because you can place things outside of artboards imho.

After that I tried photo and text too. Both failed to copy which is weird, because I am so sure, it was all possible to copy yesterday. 

I even managed to copy the brush strokes to Illustrator early after restart, but then it stoped working again.

Outside of that, I was changing passwords to my email yesterday and somehow, I reseted my accidentaly Photoshop. May it be connected?

You could check the clipboard preferences in Photoshop.

 

it's not a 16 bit/channel Photoshop file, no?

Its 8 bit. But yeah, its seems like its the Photoshop, because I can copy things to Illustrator from InDesign. 

Not sure for what thing should I look.

There's a reason I don't hang out in the Photoshop forum ...

 

Maybe you ask over there, because if there's a rare clipboard problem in Photoshop, in the Photoshop forum there are the people who know.

Does copy something in Illustrator and paste in Illustrator work?

If so I would suspect an app interfering with the clipboard.

Yeah, it works in both programs. 

Interesting, but I dont have any idea, what could be interfering with that.
