Hello I recently got the new illustrator app on iPad, I love it but I see that it is automatically saving every file at 75 dpi. What's up with that! I need to adjust that but I can't find the setting for it when I start my design, also if I import a design from a 75 dpi resolution into a higher dpi file will there be an issue with resolution? I'd hate to have to redo my whole design again..thanks for the help guys
Monika, as I said earlier. You need to learn how to address people who may not have the same or in some cases, better understanding of the program then you do.
We were given the option of choosing the resolution (DPI) of the files we were creating on Ai IPad. That has since changed. Some day you will acknowledge that. Until then, the new user is correct, you just seem to want to repeat over and over without addressing the facts.
Vector files do. Not. Have. Such. A. Thing. As. A. Resolution.
The Document raster effects resolution sets up the resolution at which raster effects (such as Photoshop effects, blur, drop shadow etc.) are rendered. But Illustrator on the iPad does. Not. Have. These. Effects.

Don't know if how much has changed within releases over time.
As of 2021.02.26, When using the different defaults for documents on the Illustrator for iPad home / start screen I noticed that the "Print" type of file now has a default raster effects setting of 300ppi.
There are points in this thread that are opinions on best practice and capability of vectors, etc.
Aside from what is or isn't what some want to do, I wonder what repercussions if any would be experienced after a CC file sync from iPad to desktop? Seems like you'd want to start from a high resolution/capability of raster ppi on thre iPad app if a user ever wants to create rich effects on the desktop. This would probably retain integrity when going back and forth bewteen devices.
Have a great day.
The raster effects resolution can be changed at any given time on the desktop version and has no effects whatsoever on the iPad version.
So in fact it doesn't matter how you set it up on the iPad.
Thanks for this info.
When you set up your canvas select Print at the top menu and then choose points for your unit and then set width and height to 300.
Thank you for posting a useful answer. Can you (or anyone else) please explain why this works for those of us who don't know? Thanks a lot!
I create files for a laser. When I send the file to my laser or the file to those who purchase it, it is too small. What good is the program on iPad if you can't use it effectively? You can't send a PDF in place of an SVG. How come other apps let you change the ppi? Why can't Adobe figure this out?
