Hi all,

I am struggling with cutting an object from illustrator (a circle with light globes around it emitting light in the form of a gradient) and posting it into another illustrator file.

When I cut/copy the object and paste it into the new illustrator file with existing artwork, the gradient of the pasted item is altered. It shows as much lighter, I have included below for you to see.

If anyone could help provide some advice on how to successfully cut a vector object with multiple gradients from one illustrator file to another it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

They weren't!

One was CMYK and the other RGB - once I converted the document I was working in to RGB and pasted the object to it, it worked!

Thanks so much
