In Device Central, still with the correct size selected, it's time to create the Illustrator document. Select File > New Document In, and choose Illustrator (Figure 3). (Notice that you can also create documents in Flash and Photoshop.) You'll see an Illustrator icon in the main window and a Create button at the lower right. Click that Create button, and you'll have your Illustrator document with no mess or fuss.

You may notice that your new document has had a custom crop area automatically created at the correct size (see "Illustrator's New Bits" below).

And the document window looks a bit weird—now's your chance to get rid of that transparency background if you don't like it. (Join the club!) To switch it off, go to View > Hide Transparency Grid.
