Hi there,

I have had an issue with the Appearance functions with text for quite a long time, tried to search for a solution but seems I am the only one who has this issue.

When I applied the extra new color(eg. white) to the text (area/point text are same),  and convert it to Rectangle in Appearance effect to have an automatic Variable white background effect which followed the text size length.
And when copy&paste this text, the new color Rectangle will become a individual path and the text has been duplicated.

Before Copy:

Pasted:

But every time I copy this area/point text and paste it, the new fill Rectangle will expand to a solid path.

But somehow holding option key drag is working, but it is annoying I can't copy and paste it to different files.


Here attached my Clipboard Handing setting. Maybe I have some setting related to this issue?

You can try and turn off the SVG option. Sometimes it causes weird errors. But then: do you have anything installed in your system that "enhances" the clipboard?

Thanks! Can confirm it is some clipboard "enhancing" software's fault causing this issue.The one I was using is Yippy, after closing the software all things went smooth now. Thank you and have a great day!
