Specifically, in Illustrator. I try to open a saved PNG file from the Creative Cloud, and while Illustrator opens, there's nothing but a blank, white screen with the outline of the picture.

Bizaare - no idea what was going on with that but all seems well now. Also, since I'm a complete noob, I'll further learn about the layers and links panel 🙂 

 

Thank you so much!
