New Features — Available Only in Illustrator CC

  • Touch Type tool: Design with type in a powerful new way. Characters can be manipulated like individual objects. Experiment with moving, scaling, and rotating, knowing you can change the font or edit at any time. Now you can use multitouch devices as well as a mouse or stylus.
  • Images in brushes: Paint with a brush made from a photo. Art, Pattern, and Scatter brushes can contain raster images, so you can create complex organic designs quickly — with simple brush strokes. As with all Illustrator brushes, your strokes can be reshaped and modified at will.
  • Font search: Find the perfect font — fast. In the Character panel, type a style such as “bold” or “italic,” a font family, or any other part of a font name. You’ll get a filtered view that lets you see just the fonts that match your criteria.
  • Multiple-file place: Import multiple files into your Illustrator layout at the same time and with new control. Define the location and scale of your files — images, graphics, and text — and use new thumbnail views to see where each file will go and how big it will be.
  • CSS extraction: Hand-coding web elements such as icons and patterns can be frustrating. Create websites faster by letting Illustrator generate CSS code for you, even for a complete logo that includes gradients. Copy and paste the code right into your web editor.
  • Sync Colors: Capture color themes out in the world with the Adobe Kuler iPhone app. Share your themes and explore thousands of others available on the Kuler website. Sync your favorite themes, and they’ll be accessible immediately in Illustrator.
  • Area and point type conversion: Instantly switch between area type and point type. Text object conversion is instantaneous so you can design freely in your text layouts. And you can work just as easily with imported type, switching formats at any time.
  • Auto corners for pattern brushes: Get the corners you want without extra steps. Create pattern brushes swiftly with auto-generated corners that perfectly match the rest of the stroke. No need to tediously create special corners for your sharp angles.
  • On-art Free Transform: Get hands-on with the power of the Free Transform tool. Move, scale, and rotate objects directly using a touchscreen device. Or use a mouse or other pointer right on the artboard to transform objects in a more immediate and intuitive way.
  • Faster type performance: Work faster with type, even in your most complicated, type-intensive designs. Text that wraps around objects and type that is set in multiple connected text frames now refreshes quickly when you make a change.
  • File packaging: File packaging automatically gathers and saves the necessary fonts, linked graphics, and a package report into a single folder. Efficiently hand off Illustrator files to production or keep your working files organized by packaging up your project.
  • Unembedded images: Easily unembed images that have been placed and embedded in an Illustrator file. You can quickly make images available for editing or extract files embedded in artwork you received from someone else. Links to the image files are created automatically.
  • Expanded Links panel options: Get more complete information about any placed file in the Links panel. All of your placed elements — images, graphics, and text — appear in the Links panel, where you can track them with greater control than ever before.

  • Multiple artboards: Organize and view up to 100 artboards of varying sizes, overlapping or on a grid. Quickly add, delete, reorder, and name. Save, export, and print independently or together.
  • Gradients and transparency: Interact with gradients directly on objects, defining the dimension of elliptical gradients, editing colors, and adjusting opacity. Apply gradients to strokes — along the length, across the width, or within the stroke itself. Even create gradients on meshes.
  • Variable-width strokes: Draw strokes with variable widths, quickly and smoothly adjusting at any point. Create and save width profiles and apply them to any stroke, or use variable-width presets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need an Internet connection to use Illustrator CC?

A: All Creative Cloud desktop applications are downloaded directly to your computer. Once Illustrator CC is installed, you won’t need to be connected to the Internet in order to use it. (Downloading the latest updates and using features like Sync Settings requires an Internet connection.)

Q: If I decide to leave Creative Cloud, will I lose access to my files?

A: When you create files with any of the creative apps from Adobe, the files are yours. Adobe doesn’t take any ownership of those files. When you save your files to Creative Cloud, you’ll always have a local copy of them. Even if you cancel your Creative Cloud membership, your files remain on your local hard drive. And you’ll always have access to a free level of membership that provides 2GB of storage for files.

Q: With Illustrator CC, will I be forced to always run the newest version?

A: You will always have access to the latest version, but you won’t be forced to upgrade. You can continue to run whichever version you want until you’re ready to download and install the latest version. You will also have access to older versions of the software to download, starting with CS6.

Q: What are the differences between the Illustrator CC single-app membership and a Creative Cloud complete membership?

A: In addition to all the features of the Illustrator single-app membership, a complete membership also gives you the latest versions of all the other Creative Cloud desktop apps, including Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Adobe Muse, Adobe Premiere Pro, and After Effects, as well as Adobe Acrobat Pro, Photoshop Lightroom, and many more. Creative Cloud complete membership delivers everything you need to create, collaborate, and publish — all in one place.
