Exporting a Vector Sketch from Adobe Illustrator Draw

When you're pleased with your finished sketch, you can export the sketch to Adobe Illustrator CC for finishing on your desktop computer if you have Illustrator 2014.1.1 (18.1.0) or later. Click the Share icon on the top menu to open its panel, displaying several choices. To export your vector sketch to Adobe Illustrator CC, tap on AI (Send to Illustrator), as shown earlier in Figure 13. Your file will automatically open in Illustrator CC. To view the vector paths, as I did in Figure 14, choose the Selection tool in the Toolbox and click on a path to select it. Now you're ready to complete your illustration in Illustrator CC. Have fun!
