Copy-Paste Illustrator to InDesign has changed behaviour after June2020-Updates

After the June2020-Updates copy-pasting an illustration (let's say a logo) from Illustrator to InDesign now results in NOT getting an editable graphic in InDesign. I now can no longer edit the colour or line stroke properties. A look inside the according settings page didn't help so far. — Any hints?

PROBLEM SOLVED! 

I finally found it on InDesign's side: after the update in the preferences there was checked ON: »When pasting prefer PDF.« … which I always had OFF. … Was only searching on Illustrator's side before 😉

Hi Deebee170911,

try with a simple shape first. If that works proceed with complex objects.

Be aware that if the paths are too complex InDesign will generate a PDF-like object on the page.

If you copy/paste text a special EPS-Text-object will be created where you can change fill and strokes, but will not be able to edit otherwise.

 

That all said: Provide some sample documents.

The AI file, the INDD file after you pasted.

You can share that by Dropbox or a similar service.

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender
