Problem saving vector graphic to Library

Nov 26, 2019

When I try to save a vector graphic to a library in Illustrator (v24.0), I get a message that says "Saving to a legacy format may cause some changes to your text layout and disable some editing features when the document is read back in. Do you want to continue?". Is this normal? Because when I then take that graphic from the library and put it into a new ai file, it isn't showing as a normal vector graphic.

Can you give some more details?

The library is that a CC library?

The document with the graphic is that an older document?

What exactly is not normal with the graphic? Can you show something?

Yep, CC library. Not an older graphic. So it converts the graphic into some format that is still vector, but isn't editable the way the way it normally should be. It has the placement box surrounding it with the crossed lines over top of it when I try to pull it out of the library and use it on another file.

Hi. As the message says, the files can have changes or variations when you save in an older version. That changes depend of the document content.

The graphic is not from an older version of illustrator. But just in case, I created a new file that definitely was 2020 and tried to drag the graphic into a library from there and still got the same "legacy" message.

I just saw the same message when dragging objects to a library.

Dragging them from the library into another document seems to work normal, but the message looks like a bug.

It seems that the problem stopped appearing.

I can in 24.0.1 drag to a library without getting the message.
