Cloud documents are Adobe’s cloud-native document file type that can be accessed online or offline directly from within the Illustrator app. Save your work as Cloud documents and access them on any computer where Illustrator is installed.

 Enhancements to cloud docs in Illustrator 25.0

 

  • Offline availability of cloud docs: With the latest version of Illustrator, you can create an offline copy of your document and work without an Internet connection. When you are online, the changes you made offline are automatically synced to the cloud

  • Versioning: Access previously saved versions of cloud documents, or revert to earlier versions of the document.
  • Support for Cloud PSD files (PSDCs) in Illustrator  Place PSDC file in an Illustrator document as an embedded file. Linked documents are not supported.

 

Do you think these enhancements give you an adequate reason to save to the cloud? Are there reasons as to why you would still want to save your file locally? Reply to this post to let us know.

 

Thanks,

I already save to the cloud, but to Dropbox. I do not - and never will - use Adobe's Cloud Docs. Why? Many reasons:

1) The storage space for Cloud Docs is massively overpriced compared to Dropbox.

2) Everyone in my industry uses Dropbox as it is a far better, more convenient, logical system.

3) Cloud Docs do not support linked images.

4) Cloud Docs do not support Background Save.

5) Cloud Docs from Illustrator cannot be imported into InDesign.

Adobe can continue to add as much functionality as they want to, but I will not be railroaded into using Adobe Cloud Docs. Time would be better spent fixing the extremely poor performance of Illustrator before starting work on a cloud-based file format.
