Problem Copying tables from InDesign into Illustrator

Hello all,
Until now I could easily copy designed tables from InDesign into Illustrator (apple+a >apple+c>apple+v).
Unfortunately, this is no longer possible in the latest version of both programmes.
Can someone help me urgently.
Many thanks in advance!

Problem solved.

It didn't work via the menu either!?
We then experimented again.
Grouping, copying and pasting did not work.

But....The solution:
Next to the designed and formatted table
add another element (for example an empty frame field). Group the table
and the additional element together, copy and paste. Then everything is
transferred.
Then simply delete the additional element.
Thank you very much for your support!!

They have improved the handling of formatted text and that might have ruined your workflow. You could add that table to the CC library as a graphic. And then place it from the library in Illustrator.

Hello Monika,

Thanks for the quick answer. Either I'm still doing something wrong or
it's not working.

It's about getting the designed table (with coloured fields etc.) into
Illustator.
If I do it as before via "copy and paste", it only takes over the texts,
without the design and the typesetting.
Only the texts.
If I do it as you described, via the CC library, I unfortunately have
exactly the same problem! It also looks exactly like this.

Don't just drag it into the library in InDesign. You have to add it via the menu.

Glad you could solve it.

 

I tried the way of adding the table via the menu before answering and it worked for me.
