Vector Smarts photoshop to illustrator cropmark issue

Hi

Recently when I am editing a vector smart from Photoshop, it opens in Illustrator. When i update the object it is applying registration/crop marks. Why is this happening all of a sudden and how can I change this? As it is also moving the placement of the artwork and not updating it true to size. It is posing a continual problem for me. Also it never used to happen so not sure if its an update or if i have a setting on somewhere that os incorrect?

Thanks

Can you see the crops in Illy when you edit the placed file?

If so, try either to create a clipping mask to isolate just the area you want to update, or change the artboard size and only export the artboard...

So you're editing a smart object?

Please describe step by step what's happening?

Also: has that smart object originally been created in Illustrator?

Hi All

So since I've posted this I have been on the phone to adobe. Its happening in photoshop specifically from an INDESIGN copy and paste. Then when editing the smart vector from PHOTOSHOP, it opens in ILLUSTRATOR, I edit, then update the smart object and it updates with crop marks bottom left corner and the image cut off top right.

This is only an issue when copying from INDESIGN TO PHOTOSHOP AND BACK INTO ILLUSTRATOR. Not from Illustrator to Photoshop. Those files are fine

I have discovered that it is happening and I need to reset my preferences for ILLUSTRATOR, that worked when on the phone to adobe. It has since reoccured and I've not managed to resolve it again. i will have to get on a call with adobe again. See example below. I only added the circle to the image, look how it updatesScreen Shot 2017-06-09 at 12.26.17.png

A work-around:

• Layer > Smart Objects > Export Contents

• open the ai in Illustrator and Save As a new pdf-compatible ai file

• back in Photoshop Layer > Smart Objects > Replace Contents

If the issue arises often one could probably automate this with a Script.
