Moving Data Between Apps

As you use the individual applications in the suite, you'll realize increasingly that you have to move information between them—and other applications outside the suite as well. There are several ways to do this, each method having its own pros and cons.

Copy and Paste

One of the quickest ways to move data between applications—be it text, images, or artwork—is via the copy and paste command. But like most things in life, the quicker way isn't always the best way. In most cases, information is lost when copying and pasting between applications, including text formatting, color information, image resolution, metadata, and more. However, many times a simple copy and paste will save time and provide you with what you need. For example, you might want to draw a shape in Illustrator, taking advantage of the precise drawing tools in that application, and then copy and paste just the path into Photoshop or InDesign.
