When you copy-&-paste from Illustrator to XD, the simplest of objects lose styling and gain a lot of layer-objects in XD. See the attachment.
Copy-&-paste was working great before the last couple of updates. This bug has completely ruined my workflow. I work with a lot of software engineers, making a lot of application mockups, every week. They depend on me to quickly visualize and make sense of their crazy ideas. I can not do that, now.
I found a work-around:
If I create a whole seperate Illustrator file, and paste my mockups in that and save it, and THEN open that Illustrator file with XD, then the styling and layers are preserved.
macOS Catalina 10.15.7
XD 18.104.22.168 x64, Creative Cloud Sync 22.214.171.124

Thank you for contacting us, issue has been logged from our end and developers are on it. Fixes will be seen in the upcoming releases.
Awesome! Thank you! This bug has completely wiped-out my workflow. I used to be able to blaze through mockups in Illustrator and simply copy them in XD for all the Engineers to use. I now have around 30 engineers freaking out on me becuase everything has come to a screeching slow-down.
