    Why won't illustrator Cs5 allow me to copy and paste layers when they aren't locked?


      I am working on a project and when I try to copy and paste unlocked layers to paste them in to another image it doesn't paste. The only thing it pastes is the text unformatted. I tried resetting the settings by removing the setting file to see if I can set Illustrator back to square one and it isn't working. See Picture for before (copy) and After (paste)








      I am also using windows 8 on a pc. I would say it was the OS but it was working fine untill yesterday. I am begging for help on this. It is really ruining my work flow today.


      Thanks for any help you can give.
