Hi, When I copy and paste text as paragraph the text converts automatically to outline!
I use illustrator 24.0.3 on Mac Platform.
Does anyone have any idea where this thing came from?
If the obvious settings in Preferences > File Handling & Clipboard are all usual,
could you check if there are any extensions in place that interfere with the clipboard?
This can be general Mac system extensions, but also some borwser plugins.
Also: you don't copy and paste text from InDesign?
Thanks for your reply.
When I copy the text from Indesign to Illustrator I received Win. with:
"Adobe illustrator the document contains PDF objects that have been reinterpreted"
"To preserve appearance, some text has been outlined"
When I copy and place in Indesign it's work OK.
Copy and paste between InDesign and Illustrator ould be better.
Ligatures from InDesign can cause outlines in Illustrator.
Try to turn off Ligatures in InDesign before copy.
Or copy the text with the Text tool instead of the text frame with the selection tool.
Or try to use a CC library to exchange text.
This sounds normal. Your original message seemed to say it only happened inside Illustrator (copy from Illustrator, paste to Illustrator). You can't expect to keep everything intact in styles and detail between different apps.
Maybe it's normal between Indesign to Illustrator.
But copy and paste text in illustrator it's converted automatically, I don't remember anything like that!
So do you get this message if you copy IN ILLUSTRATOR and paste IN ILLUSTRATOR? No InDesign use?
No. Just between Indesign to Illustrator.
My problem is only in illustrator when I copy and paste, the convert to outline automatically.
When I use copy holding the "alt" and drag with the double arrow it as paragraph and not convert to outline
This is interesting. I tried to replicate and I get the same. Copying and pasting and Alt dragging text from Illustrator to InDesign don't create outlines. I researched this issue and InDesign Secrets wrote an article about it.
They don't list an exact solution but Steve Werner has a workaround.
"Here’s a workaround that may help sometimes with a lot of Illustrator formatting: (1) Save the Illustrator file as PDF, choosing to Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilities (you can use the Illustrator Default PDF export preset. (2) If you have Acrobat Standard or Professional, choose File > Save As and select RTF as the format. (3) In InDesign, choose File > Place and turn on the options to retain formatting."
Hopefully, there will be a fix in the future.
This really made me suffer for a while!
It'll only happen if you copy/paste the text along with a shape as grouped or something. Try to copy/paste only the text and it will be done with no issues.
So basically just ungroup things then, copy/paste
