|This is the work around we use to
overcome a pesky pasting problem in Flash MX.
We find that the fastest way to bring files from Illustrator
into Flash is just copy and paste them from one app into
another, but… Flash MX has some issues with this method.
Majority of pasted content that contains text, when pasted
into Flash MX from Illustrator becomes corrupted.
So, one way to overcome this problem is to save Illustrator
file in EPS format and import that EPS in Flash MX, a bit
of a long process, if you consider all the steps it takes:
In Illustrator choose save from menu, name file, click OK,
then in Flash MX: choose Import from menu, browse to the
file, select it,
Not a bad method at all, but
if you have Flash 5 still installed on your computer, you
bring your content with text from Illustrator to Flash MX
faster with just copying and pasting.
When working with files between Illustrator and Flash
always keep Flash 5 open as well, and after copying our
content from Illustrator we paste it into Flash 5 first – it
pastes good 100% of the time, then straight away we copy the
content from Flash 5 and paste it in Flash MX, and you’ve
guessed it - it pastes good
100% of the time.
Again for us
this method is faster then Export/Import way.
you still have good old Flash 5 – install it
and give it a go.
