I'm relinking some illustrations in Indesign, and it now wants to show all the white space from the illustator page.

Previously it automaticalluy clipped the white space, giving you the illustation at the maximum size?

So you seem to be using drag and drop. I believe the cropping options are "sticky" which means you probably used the wrong option in the place dialog the last time you used it. I would suggest using the relink command one time, show options, and select crop to art and see if that solves the drag and drop problem.

When placing turn on the Show Import Options checkbox:

This will give you an option to choose how you want to crop the Illustrator image:

  • Did you turn on the transparency raster in Illustrator?
  • What cliping path from Illustrator are you talking about? Illustrator has no clipping paths?
  • What file type did you use from Illustrator to place into Indesign?

Can you show us what it looked like previously. That is still not clear to me.
