Cannot replace instance image - Pasting inside the current selection is not possible

Hi there,

I’m trying to replace an image instance. I’ve copied the image I want to update with, select the old image within the container, right click and select past to replace but am receiving a “pasting inside the current selection is not possible” notification.

I’m trying to replace “Image 1”:

I’m fairly new to the program so please let me know if I’m making a mistake.

Images in instances are changed or added using fills in the properties panel.

I see, thank you! Solved.

Copying and pasting fill from one object to another that’s contained within an instance doesn’t work anymore.
