"Place copy" of RGB CC library item in CMYK doc changes document color setting to RGB
1. Created text or other items in an RGB AI doc.
2. Add to CC library via drag and drop.
3. Open CMYK AI doc
4. Right click the RGB item and select "Place Copy" (looks like that's cut off on the GIF — probably recorded with too few frames).
Expected result: RGB items converted to CMYK
Actual result: CMYK doc converted to RGB

Works like a charm. Thanks!

Yes, agree. It would be nice to have more control over Illustrator's document color profile without having it changed by text or other items copied over via the CC Libraries. Illustrator would be improved if there was more control from forced color setting conversions.
