Illustrator copy and paste gradient vignette

When I copy and paste a gradient vignette (e.g a simple black square with 0% opacity on of the nodes on the gradient slider), the pasted item loses its vignette, i.e reverts back to 100% opacity. Strangely if I hold OPT and drag, it works. It's a workaround around but not ideal especially when pasting to different documents. I've included a screen recording to demonstrate what happens. Note: this was reorded using Illustrator 2020 but problem still exists in the 2021 version. Any thoughts?

Cannot replicate this behavior. Does the problem continue if you restart Illustrator/computer?

Hi Peter,

Yes still does it. Even when updating to the latest versions, the issue still exists.

Think I've resolved it – I resorted to resetting my preferences. I've since adjusted the prefs to match my original setup and there are no issues.
