I was trying to better organize a theatrical seating chart by separating objects from the original Illustrator 2019 file into separate layers. The icon representing individual seats was created as a compound path, where different color fills indicate different sections/price levels. However, when I cut the icons from the background layer and paste them into a newly created layer, I seem to lose the fill for all the seat icons. All I see in the new layer is outlines. I'm new to this version of Illustrator, so I may be doing something stupid. I'm not sure if this happened immediately or if something I did to the file later caused the anomaly. Can anyone help? TIA

    Difficult to answer without seeing your layers/objects panel. is there perhaps a clipping mask somewhere? are you cutting whole objects or perhaps just parts of a path? – Luciano Jul 8 '19 at 8:25
