Hi there, 

 

I have had no luck with copying a simple path from illustrator into photoshop. I need to create the same working path in photoshop. I have the ultimately the same image in both AI and PS and when I use the copy/paste feature, the prompt to select how to import e.g. smart object, path, pixel pops up, when I select PATH, the path doesn't copy over. It's just an empty work path. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be much apprecaited!

You could try and deactivate the PDF and the SVG. I don't know if it changes anything. You might ask in the Photoshop forum if there are any known issues with pasting as path.

So you are copying just the path from Illustrator? Or the path with the image?

Is it really just one path? Or multiple?

 

Which version and system is it?

Do you have any extensions in your system that "enhance" the clipboard?

Hi Monika,

 

Thanks for your reply!

 

I am only copying just the path from illustrator. The image is in a locked layer.

 

Working on a Mac desktop and in the latest cloud version 23.2.3 and no special extentions have been added.

How are your clipboard preferences set up?
