Problems when copy-pasting text

Community Beginner ,
Jun 22, 2021 Jun 22, 2021

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

I can't copy and paste text from illustrator to any other program. When I select some text on AI and then copy it in the, for example, Whatsapp App or on my NotePad app on my MacBook the text copies as an image with white background. This didn't happen before the last update.

¿Any thoughts?

Thanks 🙂

I just try this trick and it worked, copy text (select the text and hit cmd+c) from your illustrator and paste at any program using (cmd+shift+v).

 

I hope it help..

I was able to cmd+c and then cmd+shift+v into other applications from illustrator, but now that doesn't seem to be working anymore and it's just pasting an image again... Has anyone had any other solutions for this?

Try through the edit menu too, it's sometimes 'paste without formatting'

This didn't happen before the last update. How to post a bug report to Adobe?

You probably have some third party app messing with your clipboard.

Possibly one of these but not limited to them: 

  • WebRoot
  • Apple Terminal
  • Word, Excel, Powerpoint
  • »Enable Full Keyboard« in Settings > Accessibility > Keyboard on Mac OS
  • Apple Mail, Outlook
  • Spacebar is used as a shortcut by the system
  • Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari
  • Wacom Desktop Center, Wacom settings
  • Windows Touch Pad problem
  • LastPass, Bitwarden (password managers)
  • The VPN
  • LangSwitcher app (it needs to be closed and disabled)

Simple solution - copy text from Illustrator, go to Word and from dropdown menu "Edit" go to "Paste special".

You will get a pop up and will give you options to paste as txt or image or pdf etc. Pick txt. Simple and it works.
