The Adobe Illustrator 2022(version 26.0) was designed by Adobe Inc. The Adobe Illustrator 2022 was updated on Oct 25, 2021. There are some of the extra features added to Adobe Illustrator.
Features of Adobe Illustrator 2022
1. 3D and Materials
The most exciting addition to illustrator 2022 has to be the 3d and materials feature. It has its own panel which you can find from the Window menu and this is probably the easiest way to work with it. However, you can also find it from the effect menu under 3d and materials.
Key Features of 3D and Materials
- Ray Tracing
- 3D Groups
- Rotate View Tools
Now notice that we still have the legacy original 3d effects here but I wouldn't recommend using these anymore because besides the new features being more intuitive they are less likely to crash illustrator as well in case you ever use the old 3d effects I'm sure you experienced a couple of crashes with them.
Now before we get into creating these 3d objects in illustrator I want to also point out that I highly recommend turning on setting in the preferences. You will find this underperformance and it is the real-time drawing and editing option. So make sure to enable this and you don't actually have to restart illustrator for this to start working essentially what this means is that we will be able to get a live view of the changes that you do in 3d.
2. Share Your Work
When you save your Illustrator file as a cloud document. You will be able to invite collaborators to review your work. And now you will be able to see their comments coming up live within the comments panel and the only requirement for reviewers is that they need an adobe id but they don't actually need to have a license for adobe illustrator.
You as the designer will be able to see the comments coming up live within this panel you will be able to also respond to them or even mark them being resolved once you made the changes that they requested.
3. PS Cloud Documents
You can now also place photoshop cloud documents into your illustrator cloud documents. You can do this from the place option so I'm going to select this one here and notice that there is a linked option which by default is enabled once I choose a place I can now click and drag to place this image in here and this is going to be a linked file but the source is not on my computer it is in the cloud of course.
If I decide to break the link I can always embed this image inside this illustrator file but if I keep it linked then anytime I'm making changes to the photoshop cloud document. I will be able to also update the link here in illustrator.
4. Adobe Fonts
Last but not least in case, you like working with adobe fonts, the good news is that now illustrator will be able to automatically enable any adobe fonts that are used in a document that you are opening up on your computer. So you will get this dialogue box at first but if you choose don't show me again and enable auto activation then each time you are working with a new document. It will all happen in the background and you don't have to worry about it.
