Shapes not vector after export (PSD, XD, etc)

Recommended Posts


For some reason, the shapes I made are not exporting as vectors on PSD, XD, and PDF. Not sure what went wrong. Can you help me take a look? 

I tried to do the same thing with a single rectangle and it worked perfectly. But this file I'm attaching doesn't reflect it at all. 

What did I do wrong?

Thanks! It worked on AI but still doesn't on PSD which is super weird because they're just simple shapes.

Is there a way for me to do it in PSD? I used these settings and it still didn't work: 

Preserve editability
Compatibility mode: OFF 

Primarily I need it to work on PSD. Do you think there's something I did wrong in the file that caused it to not read as working vector layers?

No problem, sorry for the delayed response. Your shapes have 0pt stroke width, but have their Stroke style set to Textured Line Style. This is not compatible with vector exports, hence your objects are being exported as Pixel.

If you select your shapes and change the Stroke style to either Solid or None in the Stroke Studio then your export will be fully vector :)
