Recently upgraded to cc2018. We are using anchored objects (icons- AI files) within text boxes. They are losing their fill after Incopy closes file. Work flow goes from designer(Indesign) to editor (Incopy). Icons are fine when designer closes file and sends to editor. Editor works file and closes. Designer opens file and Icons have either lost thier fill or have strokes applied. Has anyone experienced this?
All of employees are on macs but versions vary. Please help.
The anchored icons loose their fill. Yes, everyone is on cc2018. We recently upgraded from CC2015 - we had no trouble with using anchored objects using this version. Tell my company about the version thing. LOL.
These are not linked. The designer copys and pastes into the layout from a template. They are anchored into the text box. We never linked in CC2015 either. These are simple icons with very few points and a gray fill.
Why was there no problem with CC2015 using this workflow, we have been doing this for years - even before CC2015. The problem occured after the upgrade to CC2018. I read that InCopy CC2018 has issues with anchored objects - pdfs and especially AI files.
Has anyone else had issues with anchored objects in CC2018 InCopy or Indesign?
Has anybody had issues with anchored icons losing their fill when working in a Indesign to InCopy workflow. Or are there known issues with CC2018 and anchored objects? Is this a known issue? Please advise of any fixes or workarounds. thank you.
You're not going to get a fix and pasting images into InDesign is bad practice anyway. Try placing them instead.
I know I am grasping here, the designers have been doing this for years and want to know why they can't do it anymore. They don't want to hear that they cannot do it anymore without a reason why. That is not an answer they will accept. I appreciate that you spent the time you did on this. I was just wondering if this is a known issue with InCopy - that they would accept as a reason........
It matters because eveytime an Incopy user touches the article we lose the fill in the icons and the designer has to fix repeatedly on their end in Indesign. it is not just cosmetic, it is changing the appearance in the layout that will be used to create the pdf for printing.
Thank you so much for responding to me and for your suggestions. I appreciate it. I will try Indesign forum.
One more question - we still have v11 in the preferences and cache even though we are on v13. I toss v11 and it comes back after launching Incopy. Could this be causing an issue?
