    Import Creative Cloud Assets into Draw?

    DavidSteinDesign Level 1

      I thought this would be rather simple but maybe I'm looking or not looking in the correct place.

       

      I have CC Library "Graphics" assets that I want to open in Illustrator Draw (ipad) and cannot access them.

       

      From Draw, I can click on settings and see an option to "Import Ideas Files" but no way to import creative cloud graphics assets. Am I correct in understanding that Ideas was the previous name for Draw?

       

      Am I thinking about this the wrong way or using the wrong mobile app? I'd like to import assets into a Creative Cloud mobile app and make vector drawings on top of those image / assets.

       

      I've tried Photoshop Mix and Adobe Sketch and Adobe Comp and none seem to have a way to import a photo from CC library to be able to draw on it.

       

      I must be missing something?!?

          Hi David,

           

          I just responded to your email. Here's what I wrote:

          It's not possible to import "graphics" into Draw as "editable" files. Which I think may be the reason you're having trouble bringing them in.... Are you trying to bring them into a Draw Layer? If so, try, instead creating an Image Layer and bringing your Creative Cloud Files assets into that Image Layer. It will not be an editable file but it can at least be part of your composition.

           

          But, based on the additional information you've written here, you are definitely trying to bring them in from the wrong place as well. Try this:

          1. Open a new Draw artboard

          2. Tap the + just above the Background Layer to open a pop-up menu with the choices Draw Layer and Image Layer.

          3. Tap Image Layer

          4. Then choose from where you'd like to import the image (On my iPad, Take a Photo, My CC Files, From Market, From [Adobe] Stock, Paste Image). In your case choose, My CC Files. That will bring the file in as an image.

           

          I hope that helps.

           

          Sue.

            Right! Thanks so much Sue. Now it seems obvious / intuitive but certainly didn't before. I didn't realize there were different layer types - I was approaching from a CC desktop mentality where I'm thinking that a layer is a layer.

             

            That accomplishes what I was seeking to do.

             

            Thanks so much for the quick reply!
