I was just going to say that @johnjackbrown.
Some of the retained features are inaccessible as well. For example, the scale and move tool. Can it even rotate anymore?
Eraser should be next to pen, now it's just two taps away
I read somewhere (Twitter I think) that colour picker was coming, is this correct? Otherwise you've got to run Kuler (sorry Color) to get em. This used to be Adobe Ideas v1.0. Now it's totally gone.
Scale and move tool is in the layers sub-menu, when you click on the ellipse icon. Check out the missing features post...
I've been using Ideas with no major problems (other than the ongoing sync issues, which has been a problem for a long time now)
As far as the export to vector PDF goes, seems like you can email a PDF to yourself, when you hit the "share" option, same functionality as in Ideas. Then just open the PDF in Illustrator.
I'm curious about the request(s) for background transparency I've seen here... it's a vector image, so there shouldn't be a background. In my case, I open the art in Illustrator, refine it, and place it in whatever other layout program I'm working in. If I need a raster image for a website with no background, I export it as a PNG. No background unless I add one. What's the problem with background transparency?
You can export via email, but the file is a jpg in Draw. Ideas sent pdfs, Draw does not. So unless you have a paid CC subscription, you can't get a vector file into Illustrator anymore.
The background transparency issue is about using Draw while on the go, without importing into Illustrator. Any image saved from the app has a white background. Of course it's easy to save with a transparent background in Illustrator, but it would be nice to have that option in the app itself. (In other words, if I don't have anything in the Photo layer, I wish it would be transparent, not filled with white.)
So if I'm using the app while mobile, I can't, for instance, make a quick logo drawing and lay it on top of a client's screenshot to give them an idea of how it might look.
OK, I get it. I did not know the email function was a jpg now. That's ridiculous.
That was pretty tricky how they got people to upgrade to paid if they wanted a vector file. I see the export for CC is jpg or png and the are stored in a different folder that doesn't appear to sync to my CC folder on my hard drive. Well played.
To be fair, they have said that the pdf export is coming back in an update. Unfortunate that it was removed in the first place but Adobe seems to be ready to remedy that.
For now, I'll continue on with Ideas until the update comes to Draw.
Hey, it only took two years! Latest update brings pdf export to Creative Cloud, if anyone else was still holding on to that thread of hope...
