Lost stroke when copying dynamic symbol
We use a lot of dynamic symbols in the fashion industry to make colorways and keep the link with the original sketch which is in black and white.
In Illustrator CC 2019 (23.1.1) and CC2020 (24.3) version on Mac and Windows, I noticed several bugs with the dynamic symbols:
When I copy a dynamic symbol (CTRL + C / CTRL+V), the outline of the copy disappears.
When I copy a dynamic symbol (ALT + Drag & Drop), the outline of the copy disappears.
When I copy a dynamic symbol using CTRL + C / CTRL + F, the outline of the copy is normal.
When I copy a dynamic symbol from one Illustrator document to another, the outline of the copy disappears.
When you copy a dynamic symbol with a pattern fill from one document to another, you loose the scale of the pattern.
I started a discussion about this issue on the Adobe forum and the solution provided by Kurt was to enable only the Transform Object option in the flyout menu of the Transform palette. But the issue occurs if you turn on either the Transform Pattern Only or the Transform object option.
Do you have any idea where this problem comes from?
I have exactly the same behaviour.
Loosing line weight for dynamic symbols is something I encountered before. I’m glad to see someone walked the whole path to pinpoint exact problems.
