Hey, we are sorry about the removal of shapes in the existing Adobe Express app, however many shapes are available in the new version of Adobe Express on mobile. You can get access here:

Hi, 

 Very limited catalog as of this morning. Is this a bug or a definitive deletion of the shapes catalog?

Thank you

Hi @Grégory35816305b5ed@Freddie241893352myk 

 

Here's what I found out:


Adobe Express recently replaced the icons available in the Editor with a curated collection of Adobe Stock icons.
The Adobe Stock icons are only available on Adobe Express desktop and will be coming soon to mobile.
On mobile, you can continue to use the icons already placed in your designs, or in any template provided by Adobe Express.

A few notes 

1 There are no icons in the section to reuse  

2 Curated? For who? As a geocacher I loved the wide array of icons to use for themed cache intro pages  

3. Why not leave the mobile version as is until the new icon library could be introduced?  

 

Something to think about in future.  Cheers

All good points, @Albain35833073qzuq.

Specifically on the third one, the timing may have been influenced by contractual obligations with the provider of the icon library. Hopefully, it won't be a long wait before the new mobile version.

 

Hope this helps,

I've been using Adobe express for a few years now and I've always loved the massive library of shapes and icons, now when I go to search a shape such as "drip" or "melting" nothing comes up and it says there are only 121 or so shapes to choose from.

 

did they get rid of all the shapes or am I just being an idiot?

I have downloded Adobe express a weak ago on my android phone and it was really amazing to say atleast, but all of sudden the feature i liked most is gone. It was under the basic shapes in shapes tab with name(other shapes or more shapes). It included social icons, Flowers, bears etc etc, and now i cant see it under the basic shapes. I am attaching some photos to explain the matter. Plz solve it Because it was so use full and dont tell me that its gone under the design assets tab Because its not there too.

I don't know what's going on but the shapes isn't working on the app even after I reinstalled it twice. Is it currently down. Anything I try to search for comes up that it can not be found. What's happening !!! Is Adobe aware of the problem?

Curated for whom?  For people who need circles and squares and a triangle?  "Curated".

Hi! I am using the Adobe Express App for iPhone/iPad and it is up to date, and I have noticed that under the shapes tab all icons are missing except for basic shapes. If I am on the desktop version, they are available through the elements tab, but on the mobile app they seem to have disappeared completely. I have also checked the design assets tab but they are not there either on the mobile app. Were the icons discontinued on the mobile app for Adobe Express? Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Hi @Kate5DC4,

 

Sorry to hear this is not what you were expected. 

 

We understand you need to use the shapes. It will be available soon. You can learn more about it here.

 

However, you can search in Design Assets and Icons to find similar elements you're looking for, as seen in the image attached. We know it might differ from the shapes, but it's an alternative solution.

 

Hope this helps,

^Winnie

Today the Adobe Express "shapes" shapes catalog disappeared except for a few limited options like rectangle, arror, triangle, etc. This basic shapes and clip art function is my favorite part of the app. I read online that the clip art catalog in "shapes" is being replaced with a smaller library from Adobe. Currently this library is only available  for the desktop version of Adobe Express. Supposedly it will soon come to the mobile version.

 

I have 3 questions about this...

 

1. For the mobile update... How soon is "soon"? Days, weeks, months? If it's not the next few days, I need to find a new program.

 

2. Due to a disability, I am unable to use a desktop and must use an iPad. Without the mobile update, I can't access the program features I need. Is there another Adobe app or option I can use on mobile with the built-in clip art library that used to be in "shapes"?

 

3. Is there a way I can "copy" a shape I used in an existing Adobe Spark file to a new file? For example, there's a certain arrow I use frequently. It's in my existing projects. Is there a way I can use it in a new project?

 

images attached are the shapes menu, plus the entire set of arrows now available. There used to be hundreds
