Can't Copy Vectors From Illustrator

Hello. Just ran into a bit of a problem trying to copy over some vectors from illustrator. Was working fine, then got to the letter f, and now I can’t seem to copy anything over.

Have tried restarting, creating new font, etc. No copying of anything is happening.

Where did I go wrong? Thanks!

Can you still copy into another program? Did you restart the whole system or just the apps?

Perhaps it is copying and pasting, just slightly out of bounds?

Mekkablue,

FINALLY figured it out after a few hours of guess work and restarting my comp and apps multiple times. Somehow when auto tracing in illustrator and expanding, the vectors wouldn’t copy over. Had to merge live paint after expanding or use the paint bucket tool to get them to where they were copy-able.

Might help someone else who runs into the same thing.
