Adobe Illustrator CC is the industry-standard vector graphics software used worldwide by designers of all types who want to create digital graphics, illustrations, and typography for all kinds of media: print, web, interactive, video, and mobile.
And because Illustrator CC is part of Adobe Creative Cloud, you get access to all the latest updates and future releases the moment they’re available.
We’ve been busy.
With Illustrator CC, you always have access to new features as soon as they’re released.
See on-screen controls clearly
You can now increase the size of anchor points, handles, and bounding boxes making them even easier to work with.
Merge data using CSV files
It’s easier than ever to merge data in the Variables Panel now that you can use CSV or XML files.
Import multiple page PDFs
Save time when you import all the pages of a PDF all at once. You can choose a page range or select individual pages.
Dropbox Smart Sync improvements
Now you can browse your Dropbox files without inadvertently downloading them.
Work faster with access to all your controls in one place. The new and intelligent Properties panel shows you only the controls you need, when you need them.
Transform your vector graphics while maintaining a natural look. Puppet Warp, powered by Adobe Sensei, lets you quickly create or modify a graphic without having to adjust individual paths or anchor points. See how it works ›
Now Illustrator lets you create up to 1,000 artboards on a single canvas so you can work with more content in each document.
Apply predefined glyph alternates to an entire block of text without having to individually select and change each glyph.
Easier artboard organization
Select multiple artboards at one time, and align and organize them automatically on your canvas in just a click. Objects locked to an artboard now move with it.
SVG color fonts
Design with fonts that include multiple colors, gradients, and transparencies thanks to support for SVG OpenType fonts.
Illustrator supports OpenType variable fonts, so you can modify a font’s weight, width, and other attributes to create your own style — while still maintaining fidelity to the original design.
MacBook Pro Touch Bar support
Get instant access to core tools right when you need them on the contextual MacBook Pro Touch Bar.
Text management in Creative Cloud Libraries
Libraries in Illustrator now support text, so you can store and access the passages you use most — like taglines, brand marketing descriptions, and other placeholder copy. Plus, share text between Illustrator and Adobe InDesign CC libraries.
