This has puzzled me for a few years and I have yet to find a solution with a little trying. I have a logo in Illustrator and I copy and paste it to Indesign. In the past I could hold down shift command and resize the logo and everything looked fine. Now when I try to resize in the same fashion - the gradients in the logos get all wacky and seem to change. I try shift option - now the masks get all mized up. I have illustrator set to AICB in pref.
Has anyone run into this. I htink it started with ID5.0 - I am now using CC
I have noticed that the gradient are not pasting into the Indesign Swatches as well. I can confirm that the gradients are infact cmyk gradients in illustrator and not images.
Let me answer my own question now. It is funny how when you ask a question in a forum - nobody answers your question but the world answers everyone else's question instantly.
that in mind - I had to set Illustrator to CMYK color space to get the gradients to paste across. problem solved!
