    Adding brushes and symbols to Illustrator CS4

    Alana Bay

      I'm fairly new to Illustrator, though a long time Photoshop user, and I want to add some vectors I've downloaded from 123freevectors.  (I'm on a Mac)

       

      In Photoshop, I had no problem adding new brushes from other sources by just dropping them in Presets > Brushes folder.

       

      I tried doing the same with Illustrator by dropping downloaded vectors to Presets > Symbols.  Although they showed up in the library listing, the symbols were not correct.  Ditto by dropping them in Presets > Brushes. 

       

      How do I load new brushes and symbols, and how do I know which library to put them in when what I've downloaded is just described as vectors with extension of .ai  (some are .eps)

      Thanks!
