Copy and Paste Appearance into Photoshop Not working
Update: I just noticed that this problem only occurs when I've applied the appearance effect to the entire layer as opposed to each individual stroke.
When I edit a brush stroke appearance on illustrator, that appearance doesn't carry over when pasting into Photoshop like it used to. I've tried turning on ACIB preserve appearance, but that doesn't work. The only workaround is if I expand the brush stroke (which is getting tiresome because I do this quite often).
Another issue: When working on one layer with multiple brush strokes, I attempted to expand that one stroke, but every single stroke on the layer expanded.
Please help to fix this!

Indeed it does! To my defense I can say I tried to expand stroke, while the test document has brushes applied to all lines, and not exactly simple strokes, which are considered to be a basic apperance.
But I can offer you a workaround for that — just isolate your single path and you will be able to expand appearance only for this path only.

Diane, thanks for the report and the update — it really makes it clear.
So, this is indeed an expected and intended behaviour. When you apply the appearance to a whole layer, it acts as a container for the stuff inside and dictates the style for them.
Sure, if you pick only one thing from a 'decorated box', it won’t know anything about the decoration of the box...
The other problem, with the expanding stroke, is strange. It should not expand at all, since it does not have the appearance — if it’s the same styled layer problem from above.
Can you share the test file here?
