Export multiple paths to illustrator

Aug 7, 2012 8:42 AM

Photoshop CS5

 

 

Is there really no way to export multiple paths, on multiple vector layers, to Illustrator in one go?

    As far as I can tell there is and it’s Scripting.

    You could save as a psd file and then place or open in illustrator.

     

    If you just want the paths you can use File>Export>Paths to illustrator and choose all paths

    In the Export Paths to File dialog box click on the down pointing triangle to the right of the path you have selected.

    It doesn't work if they are shape layers, i used color fill layers with a vector mask.

     

    If you save your file as a psd then that should keep all the shape layers upon opening or placing in illustrator.

    I guess you were referring to the fact that illustrator doesn't keep the path names when exporting paths to illustrator?
