I have made an icon in Illustrator and put it into my Adobe CC library, I labeled it in the libary. When I go to AE and drag it into my project, it does not retain the label I gave it and instead reverts to "Artwork 1"

 

Can someone tell me why the icon does not retain the label I assigned in the Adobe Library?

 

Thanks very much!

Start by naming everything in Illustrator.

The original file names are always preserved.

Rick, thanks for your reply, but I am not sure what you mean.  

 

I made an illustrator file with 10 icons.  The file name for the illustrator file is "01 icons."  I dragged each icon into the CC library separately.  I then named each icon a unique name in the CC library.  When dragged into AE, every icon's name (regardless of its name in the library) changes to "Artwork 1."  

 

I am participating in a tutorial.  The prof does not have this problem-when he drags his icons from the CC library to AE, the icon name is preserved from the library.  Curious where I am going wrong.
