Copy & Paste in place from Illustrator to Photoshop - Not aligning


I am trying to copy & 'paste in place' layers from Illustrator into Photoshop, however they never align correctly.

I have checked artboard and canvas size are the same and also same color mode. Still it will not align.

Can anyone offer advice? How can I check all transparency is off (this may be the problem). I am a complete novise to illustrator and Photoshop so I really don't know much about it. Always a learning curve!

Accepted Answer

workaround: use a transparent rectangle with the size of your artboard.

not perfect but does the job

As far as I'm aware there is no correlation between position in Illustrator and position in Photoshop. If copying from AI, it always pastes to the center of the canvas in Photoshop.

I may be mistaken though.
