Copying and Pasting Text from a Word Doc instantly crashes Illustrator
I'm using the latest version of Adobe Illustrator on Windows 10. After my first crash, I re-opened Illustrator and created a new document. Before doing anything else, I switched over to the .docx file I had open in WPS Writer and copied some of the text that was there to my Clipboard. Once I switched back to Illustrator, clicked on the artboard and pressed Ctrl+V, Illustrator immediately stops responding and crashes.
Pasting some Russian or Chinese text from word, in my case, and then trying to change the font, collapses the font samples popup menu so I am unable to do it.
I figured it was some formatting the text had from the word file because the same scenario but from unformatted text in Text Edit didn't trigger the bug. Still it is very frustrating.
