Unable to Transfer Properties of Drawings with the Favorites Menu

I am having great difficulty transferring properties from my Favorites menu.

Specifically, I am unable to double-click and transfer any Drawing properties.

I can select settings from a placed Drawing with the eye-dropper and inject the properties into different placed Drawing.

However, I am unable to use the Favorites menu directly.

This also occurs with my Favorites for Fills, Lines, etc. placed in a Layout.

 

I just upgraded from macOS Catalina to Ventura, if this is the cause.

 

I have shut down and restarted AC26, and have opened and repaired the file.

This occurs will all of my current AC26 files, so it is not a file-specific error.

 

I rely on Favorites and appreciate any insight or suggestions.

In such a situation, the first question is always: what Element Transfer Setting are you using? Does it work if you use a different Element Transfer Setting?

Thank you for the reply.

The transfer settings are set to Transfer All Settings., and I get the same results with the other setting options.

 

I think the problem is the Info Box. From the Favorites callout in the Info Box I am unable to pick up and inject settings by double-clicking or even right-clicking and selecting a Transfer Setting. I have just discovered, however, that if I go to the Settings Menu (Cmd-T) and use the Favorites callout I can double-click and everything works fine.

 

For the time being, this is an acceptable workaround. 

 

As an aside, I have been annoyed with several other quirks with AC26 and the MacOS (Catalina).  Randomly the icons in my Favorites disappear, and quite often the Drag seems to freeze (doesn't dynamically show any movement), and sometimes the saved views of 3D windows are completely blank when placed on a layout.  A re-save or shutting down AC26 has been by usual workaround. Hopefully, AC27 with Ventura will be more stable.
