I'm trying to save a template I created in Illustrator to a location where it will appear here, under Saved templates. Is it seriously only possible to Save templates to here that have been purchased by Adobe?? I'm a designer—I make all of my own templates, like everyone else Lol. How is this not super simple? Been wondering how to do this for years. Is it just me????  Please help!! ❤️

Begging you,

Shelby

The "Saved" tab is for templates you downloaded from Adobe Stock.

This can't honestly be correct. Adobe's Photoshop has a near-identical launch window which features the same "saved" template tab, and I organize all of my custom templates for workflow reasons. There really shouldn't be any voting necessary. It's like the devs for the teams don't talk to each other.

You'd think so, but here we are. Please add your voice to the uservoice chorus. It really should make more sense than this.

Almost 2 years on since you're original post and we're still in the same situation. Seems crazy to me that personalised templates can't be saved in the 'saved' section.

But you can save them in the regular Templates folder:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2023\Cool Extras\en_US\Templates

(You'll have to search for the Mac version)

I put all Adobe's templates in a different folder and just have mine in there. New from template - Shift-Ctrl-N...
