Options dialog for Place from CC Library
Implement a possibility to choose how to import .ai items from Library. Now there is no dialog or options for this at all.
If your item has transparency Indesign uses import setting from last imported .ai object and provides no way to choose this for the current one. So if you want to change it you have to import no-matter-which .ai from local computer -> set desired transparency background option -> import your item from library.
This workaround is absolutely not obvious, thanks for Adobe forums it posted there (from year 2016).

see also this thread at the InDesign forum where the issue came up lately:
White box in Indesign

I have a problem with the Id libraries.
When I import a vector object, created on Ai, the vector has a box with a white background.

First of all many thanks to this anonymous source to uncover this workaround. I was quite irritated by the fact that the cropping behavior had changed from the previous time I placed a similar asset.
The current implementation is so arbitrary it might as well be filed under 'bugs'. Please give the user proper import options for library assets.
