It doesn't work since 25.1. But 25.0 works, how is it done?

Loïc,

 

You could paste in Figma as vector before AI version 25.1, but since AI version 25.1 you get a raster image instead in Figma.

 

Is that correct?

Loïc,

 

My guess is that the issue is with Figma, probably lack of compatibility with the latest AI versions.

 

If that is the case, I am afraid the solution is to ask for an update of Figma, over at www.figma.com.

 

 

In the meantime, What happens if you downsave to an earlier AI version than 25.1 and then copy from that?
