Why do objects built in Illustrator shrink to 1/10 the size when copied and pasted into either Photoshop or InDesign? I have the document and raster resolutions set to high, but if I build something at 10"x10" in Illustrator, that same object pastes into photoshop at 1" and both pastes and places into InDesign at 1".
I guess that your artboard is a large canvas artboard, which does some tricks with scaling.
This seems to be the correct answer. I didn't realize AI was creating a different size pasteboard. Do you know why that would affect the size of a vector shape being pasted into either Photoshop or Indesign? Given that all the other settings remain the same, if I open an AI file with a single artboard at 10"x10", it copies into ID and PS at the correct scale. If I open an AI file with several 10x10 artboards, it appears in both ID and PS at 1/10th the scale.
In Photoshop Make sure resize images during place in unchecked.
Can we see a screenshot, is there empty area bounding box larger than the image?
