  • cut and paste

    We have 5 apple computers, on two of those computers we have a problem cutting and pasting .tifs from illustrator to photoshop. The .tif loses its transparency, and pastes with a white matte. It works fine on our other computers. Does anyone know what preference or setting controls this?

      Not to ignore the question, but I'm curious why you're cutting and pasting a TIFF from Illustrator to Photoshop. I suppose if it's embedded I could understand ... but even then it seems a little odd.

      Maybe it's just me.

        I had to wonder why cut and paste also, Craig. I thought I'd get a drift on the "5 Apple" computers first and pick up the level of the users.

          The designs we're copying and pasting are comprised of both .tif lineart and vector art. We're running OS 10, Illy 10.0.3 and PS 7.0. I've got identical apple pcs that treat .tif files differently.

            And you no longer have the source file of the TIFF line art? And when you say it loses it's transparency are you saying that the whol TIFF has a transparency to it (50% or whatever) or are you saying that the TIFF has been perhaps masked in Illustrator to allow what's behind to show through?

            I'm just trying to make sure I understand what's happening.
