After Effects shrinking AI files built with the new 100x canvas size

For workflow reasons, I build some AI files with dozens of artboards. I then delete all but one, save as AI, and import that AI into After Effects. 

With Illustrator's new 100x artboard/canvas capability, AE has suddenly started importing these particular files as 1/10th of the size. 

It's proving to be a huge headache to get the artwork from the 100x files placed properly into a new "regular" file in order to import it into After Effects. (You also can't simply Paste In Place, because that too is broken when moving something from 100x to regular). 

 

What I'm looking for—aside from Adobe fixing the 100x issues, both AE importing AND paste-in-place—is if there's a fast way to convert a file from 100x to regular. Either in a project setting (doesn't seem to be), or if anyone has perhaps written a tool or plugin that can go into the file information and make the change quickly. 

Thanks!

I also think this is more of an Illustrator issue than After Effects, but leaving it here anyway.

Yes, it's an AI issue. It's just some math hack under the hood which AE doesn't support. Adjust your document/ artboard settings in AI and reimport.
