I updated to Creative Cloud 2015 from 2014 recently and I am having a series of weird issues working with smart objects.
First issue happens while pasting into PhotoShop (PS):
Let's say I created a vector object in Adobe Illustrator (AI), copied it and pasted into PS.
I don't get any paste options; the application directly pastes it as an embedded vector smart object.
To be more clear, I saw people talking about a dialog option to uncheck 'add to my library' to make it an embedded object. This is not my issue. No matter what, I don't get any dialogue to choose how to paste into PS. It is always an embedded vector smart object; it does not matter if I uncheck the option to always paste as smart object from preferences panel.
The second issue occurs if I want to edit contents of a vector smart object:
Does not matter if I created this vector smart object recently or if it was working properly before the application update; when I double-click on the icon on the vector smart object layer, it launches AI as it is supposed to do. Then in AI, I get a 'Text Import Options' dialog box where I need to choose encoding, and then I get export SVG plugin data pasted as text instead of the vector I am trying to edit.
I tried resetting my presets and options. All the applications are up to date. I don't have any plugins installed.
I have not found anyone on the web with same issue.
Also, now, if I select a group of objects containing a text layer in AI, I can't paste that group to PS without converting the text to vector. If I try to, PS gives out an error saying PostScript data is empty.
Can anyone help?
