Illustrator - Appearance panel effects becoming 'outined' / ' embedded'

Hey Guys,

When pasting in place, or pasting, objects and text that are using effects in the Appearance panel are becoming outlined or/and embedding. 

 

For instance "Text" with a drop shadow. If I Alt drag I will get a duplicate no problem. However, if i try pasting in place, or copy & pasting. I will be left with a 'live' text layer with no effect, and beneath it will be an embedded shadow file.

 

Please find attached a screen grab to illustrate my Illustrator problem.

 

I can begin to explain how frustrating this is. I have updated my software, tried new clean files, restarting, hitting it, and trawling through the preferences.  I thought the Preferences > Clipboard Handling "Paste text without Formatting" would be my solution, but no. 

 

OS: Big Sur Version 11.6.1

Illustator Version: 26.1

 

Any help would be very much appreciated. I can mail cookies and cake...

 

Thanks!

 

Ben

Probably you have something running that messes with your clipboard.

You can try if turning off the SVG option for the clipboard in the Illustrator preferences.

 

But then you have to analyze your system and what is probably interfering there.

Looks like some app is messing with your clipboard.

Try to close all other apps/utilities.
