    importing illustrator file with transparent background


      INDD CC 11.1.0      AI CC 19.1.0  MacBook Pro

      > I have a floorplan pdf from AutoCAD that I opened in Illustrator and saved as an AI. // There is only one layer on this ai file, with no fill.

      > I want to bring this into InDesign to add color coding etc. // The frame in INDD has no fill.

      > I'm importing rather than copy/paste into INDD

      PROBLEM: the ai file has lost it's transparent background when I work in INDD. I swear I've done this successfully in the past, but cannot find anything in setting that can cause this.  What am I missing?
