Broken copy-and-paste from embedded document to new document in AD

Recommended Posts

Since AD doesn't have an option to "save embedded document as" (pretty please add this really soon?), I thought I could mimic that by opening the embedded document, selecting all, copy, ctrl+alt+shift+n to create new document from clipboard, and then save.


Unfortunately with the attached document that is not possible. Copying the content then pasting it into a new AD document results in a corruption of the contents: not all objects are copied over and their locations are shifted.

That embedded document is pretty complicated but try this

Edit the embedded document, then In the Layers panel physically select all layers then do your copy and paste to a new document

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.
