    How do I use shapes I create in Adobe Shape?

    Dave E Employee Moderator

      All the shapes you create with Adobe Shape are stored in a CC Library.  This means you can access them in other desktop, mobile, and web apps.  Detailed instructions below.


      How to access your shapes in Creative Cloud


      Desktop: In order for this to work, you must have the most recent version of Illustrator and Photoshop.

      1. Open Adobe Illustrator on your desktop.
      2. Open the Libraries panel (Windows > Libraries)
      3. Your shapes should be present in your Libraries.  If you don’t see them there, select the libraries drop down to see if you saved your shapes in a different library.
      4. Now, you can drag the shape onto your canvas.
      5. At this point,  you can continue working with your shape, by adding editing.  Or, you can simply save the file.  Of course, after you save it to your desktop, you can email, post online, etc.

      Mobile apps:

      1. Open Adobe Illustrator Draw and open a drawing.
      2. Tap the Shapes icon to open the Shapes menu.
      3. Tap a library name to view the shapes in the Creative Cloud Library. Tap Change Library to select another library.
      4. Select your shape by tapping on it.
      5. Active Slide or Tocuh Slide. You can use Adobe Slide or Touch Slide to place the shape on the canvas. Access Touch Slide by tapping on the circular icon at the top of the menu bar.
      6. Place the shape.  Once you have activated Touch Slide, you will see a light rendition of your shape on the canvas.  Simply double tap on the shape outline to stamp the shape in place.


      1. Navigate to https://assets.adobe.com/
      2. Select the Libraries menu item (left menu on the page)
      3. Select the desired library (if this is your first time using Libraries, you will only have one).
      4. This page provide a preview only.
