Smart Object from Illustrator to PS not working after Mac Ventura 13.2.1 update
Copy and pasting a vector file from Illustrator into Photoshop as a smart object no longer saves the way it used to. In Photoshop, when I wanted to make a change to the smart object, I would double click on it in the layers panel, it opens in Illustrator, make a change, cmd + s to save, back to Photoshop and the smart object would update. Now after updating to Ventura 13.2.1, the process is the same, but after saving and returning to Photoshop, my fonts show up differently. Screenshots included.
1 - Smart Object in Photoshop
2 - Making changes to it in Illustrator and then saving
3 - Return to Photoshop with different results
Has anyone else encountered this?
Need a fix please, I use this all the time.
The problem got resolved when fonts got activated for Photoshop in the font manager app.
It seems that for some reason Photoshop does not warn users about missing fonts in smarts, although it should not be relevant, since Ps reads the PDF content from a smart to render it...
Needs further investigation. If you have updates on this — please comment.
I've taken this to the Adobe forum for the PS team to look into this:
