Further, explore the "Settings" to adjust the level of detail in your output and achieve customization excellence.

Experience the power of Text to Vector Graphic (Beta) as it enables you to rapidly generate patterns using everyday language. These patterns can be seamlessly integrated into your brand system.

 

With this feature, you have the flexibility to incorporate up to 5 brand colors or select a preset that resonates with your preferences. Furthermore, you can precisely control the color palette of your pattern, limiting it to a maximum of 30 colors.

Enhance & Customize Generated Patterns

 

When it comes to editing generated patterns, you have two convenient options:

  • Click the three dots on the generated pattern, then select "Edit Pattern" from the dropdown menu.
  • Alternatively, double-click any pattern swatch in the Swatches panel (located under Window > Swatches). This will open the Pattern Options dialog, allowing you to meticulously fine-tune all settings to your liking.

 

Elevate Realism in Your Artwork

 

  • Achieving a lifelike quality in your artwork is made effortless through the utilization of blending options available within the Transparency panel. These options enable you to seamlessly integrate intricate details from the raster image, including lighting effects, curves, and distortions.

  • Precision is key when outlining your path using the pen tool to create a pattern.
    After generating your desired pattern, select your preferred variation and apply a blend mode, such as "Multiply," from the Transparency panel.

  • The result? A stunningly realistic visual appeal in your artwork.

Manage and Preserve Generated
Pattern Variations

 

Effortlessly Apply and Archive Generated Variations

 

  • Select the object or path of your choice and apply the generated pattern variations by double-clicking any of them. Alternatively, you can apply these patterns by clicking the three dots and selecting "Apply Pattern" from the dropdown menu.
  • The patterns you apply are automatically stored in your Swatches panel for convenient access. However, if you wish to preserve an additional variation, you can click on the three dots and choose "Add to Swatches" from the dropdown menu.
  • Furthermore, you have the flexibility to edit a pattern and save a copy directly within the Swatches panel. This way, the original remains untouched, and both versions are neatly preserved in your swatches collection.
  • Need to tidy up your workspace? Easily delete unwanted variations by selecting the
    "Delete variation" from the dropdown menu. Your control, your creative journey.

 

Limitless Creativity,
Three Variations at a Time

Explore Infinite Possibilities!

 

  • While your creative potential knows no bounds, Text to Vector Graphic (Beta) lets you generate a maximum of three variations simultaneously.
  • Additionally, you can kickstart your creative process by using the "Sample Prompts" to inspire your designs.

It's not in the Illustrator beta version. You have to update the application to GA (Generally Available) public release, which is Illustrator version 28.0 via the Creative Cloud app.

Hi @MSI3283372538om @Lukas26848664smfs,

 

Sorry for the confusion. As mentioned by Monika, the Text to Vector feature is available in the GA (Generally Available) public release, which is Illustrator version 28.0. This version should be available for all.

 

Please check for updates manually, and you should see the option to update to version 28.0. If updating doesn't resolve the issue, you can also try signing out and then signing back in.

Same issue, tried Beta 28 and 28.1, 28.1 actually shows the prompt for it on the splash page and even opens the sample file, but the tool is missing. On regular Illustrator the latest version is 27.9 (no option to update beyond that). Attached a picture of my window menu with the demo file for text to graphic open in the background on version 28.1 45.

Had to reboot boot creative cloud, then go to the menu and manually do the help->check for updates. That prompted an update for illustrator (v28), and now it's downloading.

OK, I got it working. It is indeed in the 28.0 production version of Illustrator and not the 28.1 beta for anyone who had the same problem. I have a question about prompts, because I'm trying to do a storyboard that would involve the same person in multiple shots. How can I engineer prompts to show the same "person" for continuity? It seems like it's programmed to show a completely different person for every situation.

You can't do that in Illustrator. 

Having the same person in multiple generated images would require to upload images of that person. You can somewhat do that in Photoshop and you can do that in other Generative AI models.

Hello, I have updated and even reinstalled Illustrator. There is nothing related to generation in the context menu when selecting a rectangle.
I managed to get the generation tab from the tutorial file, but the generation itself is not available there: all fields are grayed out

Did you try a preferences reset? This will erase your settings, so you might want to rename the preferences folder, since that can be undone.

Hi @Deleted User @Ilya32923127j6sb 

 

Sorry for the trouble. I'd like to clarify a few things:

The generate button in the contextual taskbar should show up after you've used the "Text to vector graphic" feature at least once in a new document. It's designed to appear when you engage with that specific function. So, if it's not showing up, you might want to try resetting your preferences, as Monika suggested. This can sometimes resolve issues like this.

 

If the problem persists, it would be helpful to share some additional information about your system:

  • Your operating system (Windows/Mac) and its version.
  • Any hardware specifications or details that might be relevant. (CPU, GPU, RAM make & model and generation)
  • Device make & model

 

With this information, we will be able to further investigate the issue.

 

Best,

Anshul Saini
