How do I do this on a Desktop? When I watched Adobe Max the presenters showed this feature. Is it available now, or will it be available in the furture.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. This feature is exclusive to the iPad. To get this feature, update Illustrator on the iPad to version 2.0. The equivalent of this feature on Desktop will be Image Trace if you want to convert an image to a vector. To learn more about Vectorize feature on iPad, you may visit this help article (https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/sketch-to-vector-ipad.html). I hope it helps!

 

Feel free to reach out if you need any further assistance. We'd be happy to help.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Anshul Saini
