I'm having a frustrating issue: I create layered vector illustrations in fresco and send them to desktop illustrator for a few last tweaks. Ever since updating Illustrator to 2022, Fresco chooses one of my vector groups to export as vectors, and all other layers are merged together as one locked pixel background image. What's the deal? I've never had issues getting all of my layers imported before.
I have seen other posts saying the "simplify" experimental feature might be turned on. That's not the case for me. I see that setting, but I can't tick it on or off.
Exporting to illustrator > desktop. Desktop is an iMac running Big Sur 11.6
In this case, each circle is a layer group. I'm only getting one circle as a vector layer. The rest are grouped together and pixels. Screenshots below from iPad and desktop Illustrator.
Just saw another post about groups with masks being converted to pixels. That's probably my issue! Would love if this "feature" was resolved and illustrator could see the layers like Fresco does!
Sorry to hear about your experience. I would request you to please share a few more details like:
Note: We have added support for opening Fresco vector layers with raster masks and clipping masks as native layers in AI 2022 v26.0.1.
We are here to help. We just need more information.
Thanks & Regards,
I have this issue too and its really frustrating! Spent mny days illustrating in fresco in vectors and now I can't import to illustrator. Every attempt converts the entire document to a raster image. Whats changed? I have been working like this for months and suddenly the transition from fresco to illustrator seems impossible?
Sorry to hear about that. As I confirmed above, "Send to AI" now supports clipping masks.
However, this works only when all layers involved in clipping masks are vector layers, and all of them have blend mode as normal. If that is not the case, I would suggest you share the document with me and ensure "anyone with the link can view" & "Save a copy" is enabled.
