This doesn't work. The option to export a PSD with layers doesn't exist in Illustrator 2023 V27.1?

Hi, Did you continue on and hit the 'Export' button? It should then give you the options to 'Write Layers' or Flatten (as in screenshot). I have same illy version.

Thanks for you reply @NinjaPuss.

Yes I do get that option, but as you'll see in the screenshot the PSD just contains all of the layers merged together?

That's weird.   All i can suggest is check your grouping and sublayer names. Sorry. Good luck!

When I want Illustrator layers in Photoshop, I select and copy in Illustrator. In Photoshop, I go to Edit > Paste. From the five choices, I select Layers. (I don't know why I can't right-click.)

 

Would this work for you?
