Here's my work around - I simply installed the 2017 version of Illustrator and it works once again. You can install the CC 2017 version from the Creative Cloud window - just click on the down area next to "Open" on teh the Illustrator CC line - select "other versions" then just install the version you want. I installed 21.1.0 (CC 2017) and this feature works in it.
It does NOT work in version 22.0.1. Though it appears I can have both versions running on my machine.Jami commented
heavy sigh... after trying to get this to work I decided to Google the problem and ended up here. This is a serious issue for me as well! totally wreaks havoc on workflow.
