I got a problem. Is it possible to save patterns (created in Illustrator) to my Creative Cloud Library? Everytime i try to save it like a color, the + Symbol greys out. Please help me.
Patterns aren't supported as an asset type in CC Libraries, but there is a work-around. Fill an object with the pattern and add that object as a graphic. Then in a new document, you can drag out the shape, double-click on it until you get down to the Clip Group (or use the eyedropper to sample it). Then the New Swatch icon at the bottom of the Swatches panel will become enabled, and you can add the pattern to your document.
You can start, as Myra mentioned, by dragging an object filled with a pattern to the CC Library.
You can also drag multiple items filled with different patterns together into a CC library to simulate a pattern library.
The easiest way to add them to a new document is to hold down the Alt key when you drag them from the library and place them in a new document. The pattern(s) automatically get added to your swatches panel.
You can delete the dragged library items because the patterns are now part of the document.
In the same way you can use saved gradient swatches and global colors in CC libraries.
Well, I have patterns in my Creative Cloud that I loaded the in a year ago. I don't remember how I got them in, but they are there and work fine in illustrator.
I wonder if you used Adobe Capture. It's a mobile app and was also added to Photoshop through the CC Library there. You can create patterns using Capture via the CC Library in Photoshop that can be used as patterns in Illustrator. Here's more info:
Ya, I think that is it! It all came back to me when you mentiond 'Adobe Capture'. Now I will have to figure out how to get an illustrater swatch pattern over to photoshop then to get it to Creative Cloud... I would think, with all this ability to move stuff between the adobe apps that 'patterns' could be moved around easaly.
