Joleen, When you are using the latest version of Adobe Illustrator CC 2014 released on 10/6/2014, a 'Send to Illustrator' button appears in the Share menu. Tapping this will send the artwork including all vectors and layers to Illustrator on your desktop.
The Send to Illustrator and Send to Photoshop functionality is available to paying subscribers of Creative Cloud only at this point.
It looks like you can't download an Draw file from CC either? (You can download .idea files).
Does that mean exporting a drawing from the mobile app is the only way to get it into Illustrator?
This answered my question!
Appreciate the help!
So I do see the share option "Send to Illustrator" however, when I tap it, it says "SENT" but nothing happens. I have a few questions regarding getting the vectors to Illustrator:
Where does the artwork go? How does it know what folder to send to?
Do I have to connect to my computer with Bluetooth or a cable to get it to send?
Does it keep the exact vector functionality? All the other options that I can get to send just convert the artwork to a JPG or PNG.
@dkendall-ks tryCheck desktop > creative cloud > assets > files. sign out, quit, open, sign in and see if this now works. Previously sent files should sync.
The "Send to Illustrator" functionality sends the file to your CC Adobe Illustrator desktop (Mac or Windows) application. For this functionality to work you need to :
1. Have the latest CC Adobe Illustrator 18.1.0
2. Be signed in with the Creative Cloud desktop app with the same account you are signed in your iOS Adobe Illustrator Draw app.
Once you have completed the steps above, the artwork you send from Adobe Illustrator Draw will be opened in your desktop CC Adobe Illustrator app as vector objects (except for images that you had imported).
Hope this helps,
Hi Jose, I had a question:
I've spended much time doing an illustration with Draw without knowing about this condition of vector export only for paid CC subscribers. I'm downloading the Illustrator CC for 30 days evaluation (trying at least...). The "send to illustrator" option will be available at the Draw app after that, or I will simply loose all my 12 hours work? I ask because the .jpeg or the .png saved by the app are useless for printing.
The "Send to Illustrator" option will appear in the Share menu only in paid subscribers account at this point. It will not show up for accounts using the trial version of CC. The status of your account information (trial or paid subscriber) determines if this functionality will be enable or not in the application.
Hope this helps,
This should be more obvious in the description of the app. I thought the export to the cloud would work like in ideas. But much to late I recognized that it wont upload a vector image.
