sorry, but there is no "import option", what i do is drag-and-drop the file from my CreativeCloud Library into my document in InDesign.
Use File > Place... and show the import options.
i made that before and do it from now on.
But why i have the library-function when its not working right...?
I don't work with libraries for most jobs, but I suspect what happened is that the import option was changed at some time between when you saved the logo in the library and you tried to re-import it. That's a "sticky" option setting, so try dragging from the library again and see if it works now.
has anyone found a solution for this issue yet? there is no "show import options" for placing with cc libraries...
There is no place for such a setting currently in CC libraries.
But if you use the Place dialog, the Show Import Options, checked or unchecked, also applied when you're dragging an image from the CC library also applies to the image. And, as Peter said, it's "sticky" until it's changed again.
Ah, thank you! It worked.
I had been using PNG's instead of AI's when tried to use the Place dialog's Show Import Options to change the default. Using an AI file as my import had a checkbox for transparency that was unchecked – checking it set the new sticky default which CC Libraries now uses. Hooray!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I just spent a full hour in chat with NO help... the person even wrote it was "expected behavior." Actually, I have to share that part of conversation...they were unbelievably condescending!
Sumana Namhata : Rather dragging , you can Place teh image in indesign
Daniel Bayat: That completely defeats the purpose of having CC libraries. I just spent 4 hours setting up my library for a big project so that my workflow would be efficient over the next 24 hours, and if I can't drag my assets from the library then it is useless.
Sumana Namhata : Well the application is designed like that only . Its a expected behavior
Daniel Bayat: An expected behavior? Then why does the library show the asset without a background in the list?
Sumana Namhata : Well it a application and we cant make changes on that . A application behave as its designed . As i checked if you drag it in Indesign . It takes a Image format . Indesign is a application for designing not for the editing the images . You can check the transparency in Indesign while you export as web .
Anyways...thanks again!! You saved me and my team countless hours.
In case anyone missed the answer from eroberts-malarkey in the thread...
1. Place (Comm-D) an .ai image instead of .png
2. Select "Show Import Options"
3. After selecting illustrator file, look for transparent background checkbox in import options dialogue box, select and complete import.
4. Then try dragging any transparent file from CC library (don't be alarmed, the preview will still be white, but once placed it's transparent.
Thanks to @eroberts-malarkey !!! That was such a nightmare.
Happy CC Dragging Everyone!
It seems to me that InDesign defaults to the most recently used settings when an object is placed. Therefore, in order to place objects with transparent background from Libraries you have to:
- Open the place dialogue window (CMD + D)
- Select Options in the bottom left
- Tick the "Show Import Options" box
- Choose a .pdf or .svg and click Open.
- Select "Transparent Background" and click OK.
- Hit ESC to get rid of the placed object and then click-and-drag the desired asset from the CC Libraries window. You should now have a transparent background!

Don't use SVG in InDesign, use AI or PDF.
