I have upgraded to CC 2019. Now when I use Import to Stage or Library nothing happens at all. The program does nothing. Does anybody else have this problem? Thanks
It is working for me with AS3 and HTML5 Canvas documents, importing to the stage and to the Library.
Do you mind providing some more info and also maybe a GIF or video?
"Great news after doing the rollback and upgrade process one more time it works. I am glad Thanks" was what I posted. However, I got too excited when I saw one file open. It seems that it is opening some file to import. At first, it seemed the files it would open were made with the new version (2019) of Ai. Now I just can't tell what is going on. I but know they need to fix this. I will show another video.
JoãoCésar could you test on files that are made in the latest (2019) version of Illustrator and others?
Link to video below:
Sorry about this inconvenience.
Yeah. I run some tests here and the importer is behaving weirdly. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Even when copying and pasting images from AI to AN inconsistencies happen.
One thing I notice though that may help for now is that AN seems to succesfully import AI files that have been saved with the option "Include Linked Files" checked.
Would you mind reporting this bug here?
Preran, can you take a look at this?
Thanks, JC. I have reported this to the team, will get back as soon as I hear from them.
The team would like you to share the problematic files for investigation. Can you upload them to a shared location such as CC or Dropbox and share the link with me here? That would help.

Thank you. I have shared the file with the product team. Will get back as soon as I hear from them.
Can you please help us with the following details as we are unable to repro this issue in-house?
1. Is this issue is specific to some .ai files that you are facing this issue consistently when you are importing into Animate?
2. "Yeah. I run some tests here and the importer is behaving weirdly. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Even when copying and pasting images from AI to AN inconsistencies happen." - is this is true with even the same .ai file that you are trying to import that some time works and some time not?
Any further details that you could provide to narrow down this issue will be super helpful.
Thanks for the feedback.
I tried again and I now I can safely say that the issue happens with AI files that have bitmaps linked instead of embbeded. It happens when I import to the stage, to the Library and even copying and pasting from Illustrator to Animate, with the same or different AI files.
Here is a short demo so you can see the problem. Please notice that I put in each file name a suffix to indicate if the file has linked or embedded bitmaps.
And these are the main specs of my PC laptop:
Windows 10 Home Single Language 64-bit
Intel Core i7 7500U @ 2.70GHz 52 °C
Kaby Lake-U/Y 14nm Technology
16,0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 665MHz (10-10-10-28)
Dell Inc. 09WC1G (U3E1)
Generic PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)
Intel HD Graphics 620 (Dell)
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce 940MX (Dell) 54 °C
ForceWare version: 391.25
931GB Seagate ST1000LM035-1RK172 (SATA ) 34 °C
111GB Western Digital WDC WDS120G2G0B-00EPW0 (SATA (SSD)) 42 °C

I hope this helps.
Thanks much JC, really helpful information!
The team has been able to reproduce this issue and a bug has been logged for it to be fixed in a future update. Thank you for your help, everyone.
Just FYI - Seems like this is a Win only issue when any .png image is imported as a linked file in Illustrator and the .ai file is saved with Include Linked Files option Un-checked while saving the file(default). We are looking into this.
Any udate on when? Thanks
We have found the root cause and fixed this internally. The same will be pushed as part of the upcoming update.
Hi, I have seen multiple updates on the CC apps weeks after I posted this problem. What is the hold up in fixing THIS? Thanks
pctechtv / all - Just want to let you all know that the update we have pushed for Animate CC 2019 today has the fix for this issue.
Please update your copy of Animate CC 2019 to the latest using Adobe Creative Cloud desktop application to avail the fix. In addition, this update has Pressure and Tilt support to Eraser tool and Drag fill enhancements to Paint Bucket tool.
We tried with the shared files, Ai import on stage and library is working fine at our end. Is this consistently happening for you? Also, Can you please share your OS details?
I'm having a similar problem, though it appears that checking "include linked files" in AI does work for me. This may or may not be related to the issue where I cannot do anything until the "what's new" video in the start screen has played at least once.
