Pasting Text Box Converts it to Text Path

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

When I copy a Text Box and paste it in a different or new document it gets converted to Text Paths.

 

I just reinstalled Illustrator 2023 / 27.8.1 but to no avail, removed preferences and caches, removed plugins.

 

My colleague uses the same system Macos 13.4.1 and Adobe Illustrator version but no problems there.

 

Anyone know what's going on here? On the left the original, on the right the pasted graphics:

Most probably you have something installed in your system that interferes with the clipboard. Here is a list of possbile candidates (inconplete)

  • Parallels Toolbox running with the Clipboard History
  • TeamVewer Clipboard > Use Shared Clipboard
  • Apple iOS device simulator from Xcode
  • Windows Multi-clipboard
  • Windows Clipboard History
  • Chrome Remote Desktop
  • Mouse Pointer Highlighter
  • AnyViewer
  • Pastebot app
  • Overzealous antivirus (Digital Guardian) as well as viruses that empty the clipboard

Glad you could solve it and thank you for the feedback. If there is anyone you can reach out to to report that issue that TeamViewer is causing, then maybe do it.
