BUG:

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.  

 

Equipment:

2019 iMac

macOS Catalina 10.15.7

Illustrator 26.0.3

XD 47.1.22.2 x64, Creative Cloud Sync 5.2.7.2

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.
