Importing default gradient swatches from adobe illustrator

Recommended Posts

Hi AD team,

 

love the product - terrific! Here's my problem: I'm switching from adobe illustrator and would like to take the color swatches with me. CS5 even has an export option to export a given swatch to .ase which I could then import in AD. However, the gradient swatches ('Brights') are not exported with the gradient, just as base colors. Can anyone recommend how to move my AI gradient swatches out of AI into AD?

Thanks so much!

Welcome to the forums Stef :)

 

When you export a swatch from AI you're told that gradients, patterns, or tints are not exchangeable. You could create several objects each containing a gradient and copy & paste them into AD then save the gradients to the Swatches Panel.
