Pattern swatches behave unexpectedly
Several mentions on the Illustrator user forum about patterns changing (content or color) when copied/pasted:
and one on uservoice that looks similar:
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 25.4.1 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html
Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!
Haven't been able to find a fix so I also had to roll back to the previous version, which worked, but it lost all my preferences.
Hi, I'm having the same issue with 25.3.1 and rolled back to the previous version. I lost all my preferences when I installed the previous version too.

Same here, spend a few hours with the helpdeks. could not fix it. and now have an older version installed. Problem is "fixed"
I have the same issue when copying objects filled with, pattern the colour of this pattern changes to a random colour way from my palette, it's not a pattern colour way I have saved either. I also uninstalled 25.3.1 and installed previous version. I'm on a Mac
I originally posted the problem in the user forum. I hope you will be able to fix it, because I found out today my colleagues are having the same problem. Which means it is not an isolated incident. It happens on Mac and Windows.
I have this issue since upgrading to 25.3.1
When copying objects filled with the same pattern in different color ways, they would paste with a random colorway. I uninstalled 25.3.1 and installed the previous version and this fixed the problem.
I’m on a Mac but other users reported the same problem running Windows.

I have this same issue and can’t figure out a way to resolve it
Not sure if I understand you. Can you show some pictures to clarify?
When copy and pasting pasting from one file to another, the pattern is changing to an older colourway of the print. I uninstalled and tried again but the issue was still there. I rolled back an older version (25.2.3) and the issue was resolved.
