Enhancements to Image Trace

Additionally, it enhances the tracing results for small-sized images.



Improvements to color settings


new-feature-summary-ai-remember-color-mode-27.3-feb2023.png.img.pngIllustrator's color settings have been upgraded with the following features:

*Illustrator retains the most recently used color mode, allowing you to maintain your preferred color scheme every time you open it.
* The Gradient panel now reflects the color mode selected in the Color panel instead of starting with Grayscale.



Improved pan, zoom

Enjoy an improved workflow as you navigate your designs with ease, without any lag or delays.







Sample colors using the Color Picker



The Color Picker in Illustrator provides a convenient way to select colors. By using the eyedropper tool within the feature, you can quickly sample colors from any location on the canvas. Check out the "Select colors" section in the Illustrator help documentation for more information on how to make the most of this feature.





Locate linked or embedded files on the computer


new-feature-summary-ai-show-in-folder-27.3-feb2023.png.img.pngIn Illustrator, finding a file that has been placed in a document is made easy by utilizing the Links panel. Simply access this panel to quickly locate the file on Windows explorer (Windows) or Finder (macOS), depending on the operating system being used.
