Problem with Large Illustrator files when copying files to a new document

Hi, 

We work with physically large files like 200+ inches wide for vehicle wraps, full wall wraps etc. When I break them down with a mask to the size out printer uses. For taking a graphic from 200" file making the mask at 26" and wanting to place it in a new 52" document so I can blow it up to 200% of it's original size. I get the following message and then it changes the size from 26" to 25.1006" which isn't the size I originally started with then I get a message "Artwork exceeds the canvas bounds and will be scaled to fit properly." This is not an option we can have as our files need to be the exact size we spec'd them to be so they fit our vehicle or wall that we are wrapping. We really do need to get this fixed ASAP. This didn't happen with the previous version I was running. Please note we are running on Mac OS Big Sur 11.2.1 and Illustrator 25.2.

This looks like you'd better report it as a bug: http://illustrator.uservoice.com

 

One thing you could try is if "Paste in Place" works better.
