.sbsar files Location

This may be a really basic question, but it's one I simply can't figure out. Where are the .sbsar files that Illustrator has located on my computer? I have a ton of .sbsar files and wanted to drop a few of them directly into that folder, but I cannot figure out where they're located. I found the ones in Photoshop pretty easily, but still can't figure out where Illustrator is getting them from.

 

Thanks,

 

Jason

This seems to be it on Windows. Don't have anything to test it with though:

 

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2023\Support Files\Contents\Windows\Material-Resources\Default_Substance_Materials

Windows users have an easier access 😄

I suspected this location too, when I didn't find anthing in the Application support, but not on a Mac.

OK, I just didn't look close enough. Thank you.

 

I have also found the location of the ones I installed from other sources:

Uaser folder > Application Support > Adobe > Adobe Substance > Adobe Illustrator

By-the-way, Ton, in that same path (Resources) is another folder of the default New Document Profiles which are used to repopulate the folder in your users Preferences when you Replace Preferences. You can make changes here so you don't have to redo if you replace preferences.
