Dissapointed from the 'text to vector' AI function. Seems like a vectorised version of a typical AI generator. Does not genuinly create graphics in vector format. For example if you give a simple pormpt like: 'five red squares in a row' it will showcase something completely off. Doesn't feel right for professional use. More like a gimmick.

It cannot create that. If you want to do that (generate 3 red squars in a row), then you might be happier with the plugin Omata. https://omata.io

Thanks for the link, though I'd be happier with a real AI text to vector generator.

@Anubhav Majumder, several users from Russia reported the latest version does not have the Text to Vector Graphic panel in it. I suppose it’s the regional ban in action, but I can’t find or get proofs of it. Do you have any information on it? Can you confirm this hypothesis?

My bad, I was looking in the wrong version. Since it was called Text to Vector Graphic (Beta) I thought it was in the Beta app, but it seems to be in the stable version of illustrator. Maybe it could be the same problem?

Hi @Egor Chistyakov ,

 

Sorry for the delayed response, and thank you for bringing this to our attention. You are correct that Text to Vector Graphic (beta), powered by Adobe Firefly, is not available in certain regions as per Adobe Policy. Adobe Firefly is restricted in Russia, Belarus, and China. In addition, Adobe services and products cannot be used in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Crimea, or the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics.

 

The absence of this feature in the latest version for users in some locales is likely due to these regional restrictions. Adobe services and products cannot be provided in specific locations, and this restriction can impact the availability of certain features.

 

I hope this helps clarify the situation! If you have any more questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.

 

Best,

Anshul Saini

The article stated it can design based off our own drawings. How can we do this? It's not text-to-vector, it's drawing to vector. I'd like to see if it'd speed up my work progress. Thank you.

Just wondering if there's an ability to remove the Text to Vector Graphic (beta) from the Properties panel? It's not a property and I would appreciate it if it wasn't forced there.

Hello, the folders and the ability to duplicate a whole file in the home menu seemd to dissapeared. Before right above the filter type box, there was an add folder button. Also before at the bottom right corner of a file, you could click a three-dot button and the option to duplicate said file was there. Does anyone know where the features are?

Hi @Ayanara,

 

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the folders and duplicate file features in Illustrator. I am unable to replicate the issue at my end. See the screenshot for reference. I hope this is what you meant by unable to duplicate file.

Anshul_Saini_0-1697656080195.png

 

To better assist you, it would be helpful if you could share a screenshot or a screen recording that demonstrates the issue you're facing. Additionally, please confirm the operating system you're using and reconfirm the exact version of Illustrator (including the build number, if possible). Sharing your system specifications like CPU, RAM, and GPU can also provide more context for troubleshooting.

 

With this information, we'll be able to investigate the problem more effectively and guide you toward a solution. Thank you for your cooperation!

 

best,

Anshul Saini

I updated Illustrator to 28 version, saw new features, tried tutorial and... nothing (see snapshot) Signing out-in, resetting prefs doesn't work.

Hi @Barbara Braga,

 

I'm sorry to hear that the retype feature didn't work with the test image. For this feature to work, please download the English OCR language on your computer. Here's how you can do it:

 

  1. Click on the "Start" button on your Windows system and navigate to "Settings."
  2. Choose "Time & Language" and then select "Language."
  3. Under "Preferred languages," click on "Add a language."
  4. Choose "English (United States)," and click "Next."
  5. Check all the checkboxes except for "Set as my Windows display language," and then click "Install."

 

After completing these steps, please check if the issue still persists. This should help you use the retype feature with images. If you continue to encounter problems, please let us know, and we'll assist you further.

 

Best regards,

Anshul Saini
