The latest release of Illustrator introduces new features like Cloud documents and larger canvas along with other performance improvements.
When you save your files as cloud documents, they are auto-saved to Creative Cloud and can be accessed from any device. Combined with the power of versioning, Cloud Documents ensure that you do not lose previous changes made to your files.
The Larger Canvas in Illustrator with 100X more space helps you keep all your assets organized in one project. Creating wall art, billboards, advertisements, and more is now easier with the extra canvas area.
