Hi @mikeo19737826, hmm it must be possible to do on both mac and windows but if it's not working, I'd suggest applying these from another conversation ( https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd-discussions/can-not-copy-paste-images-from-illustrator-cc-to... ) suggested by @Mihnea Ovidenie and @HARSHIKA_VERMA  :


"I would like you to do the following test inside Illustrator:

* Drag an image inside AI

* File -> Save As -> Choose "SVG"

* From the displayed dialog "Svg Options", make sure "Embed" option is checked instead of "Link"

* If you changed the option press OK so that Illustrator remembers your preference

* Copy the art with linked image and paste in XD"
and opening AI file in XD:

"

To open an Illustrator file in XD, do one of the following:


- In XD, select File > Open. Navigate to the required folder, select an .ai file, and open in XD. You can also use the Cmd+O (Mac), or Ctrl+O (Windows) keyboard shortcuts.
- Drag the Ai file over the XD icon (on Mac only).
- Right-click the Illustrator file and select Open with > XD from the sub menu.

 

Here’s a list of what’s supported and not supported at this time: https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/kb/open-illustrator-files-in-xd.html "

Hope this helps!
