I'm trying to move a very long diagram I'm working on to a large format canvas as I've run out of space on the normal format. If I try and copy and paste the content, the formatting gets wrecked for some unknown reason as per the screenshots. Is there an easy way to do this?
You are referring to the text?
Yeah, the text gets those massive gaps in when I copy it from the first illustrator document to antoher.
Can you compare if the text formatting changed?
Some of it has changed and some hasn't. I think there's just inconsistency in what has styles. I noticed there was about 300 character and paragraph styles for some reason so I'm just going to bit the bullet and manually change them all. It might have something to with the fact the majority of the document was imported from CorelDRAW.
That might particularly mess up text.
The text engines just cannot be compared.

I haven't had similar text formating issues when going from one to the other like you are. I think it must be because of the CorelDRAW as well that is causing the problem. My formating has always remained the same when just within the AI world.
