The world's most powerful toolset for vector art and illustrations has been transformed with faster performance — 10 times faster than CS6 — and even more natural ways to create, connecting your desktop and mobile apps with all your creative assets, so you can do your best work anywhere.
Edit once, update everywhere
Assets in Creative Cloud Libraries can now be linked so that when a change is made to an asset, you and your team members have the option of updating it across any Illustrator, Photoshop or InDesign projects where it's used.
Find the perfect image or graphic, fast
The new Adobe Stock marketplace lets you find, license and manage royalty-free images and vectors from within Illustrator CC. Select from 40 million assets, save your selection to your Creative Cloud Libraries and then drag it into your project to use.
10x faster zoom, pan and scroll
Thanks to a Mercury Performance System boost, you can pan, zoom and scroll more than 10 times faster and more smoothly without slow, stepped changes.
10x greater zoom magnification
Zoom into your artwork up to 64,000% (up from 6400%) so you can create and edit with greater precision.
Never lose your work
Recover your work if Illustrator crashes and you've forgotten to save. Just relaunch and your file will be restored. Illustrator gives you the option of quickly diagnosing what caused the crash, such as a corrupt font or out-of-date driver or missing plug-in.
Integrated with new Adobe Comp CC
Create layouts for print, web or mobile on your iPad. Pull creative assets into Comp from your or your team’s shared Creative Cloud Libraries, and then instantly send your layouts to Illustrator. All your text, images and graphics are live and fully editable.
Use Sketch art in large-format designs
Scale Photoshop Sketch drawings up to four times their original size with no loss in quality.
