    Hello everyone,
    I hope someone can help me with this:
    I have made an illustration on my iPad Pro in Adobe Draw and was so naive to think that once finished, I could export it somehow, keeping the vectors. But the only way it exports is to png.
    I really want the vectors! It seems that there is only one way to do this and that is through Illustrator CC signed on to a Adobe account. Since I only have Illustrator CS6 this isn't going to work for me.
    Is there anyone who knows how this works and who is willing to. Help me out? It would be much appriciated!

    Illustrator CS6 saves and exports to a lot of different formats. Are you sure it won't do what you want?

    This is "Draw", not Illustrator."Draw" is an application people can use on a tablet PC. Tablets haven't advanced to the point where they can run a full Adobe suite.

    Draw sounds like a big rip-off. No save to EPS or PDF? No thanks! Get a drawing tablet and the full Illustrator version on your desktop or notebook.

    It looks like people have had some luck getting vector art out of a save to SVG format and then emailing it or something? I don't know.

    I read that it only works with a paid subscribtion. Besides that I really don't want different versions of Adobe software on my Mac as in the past it more then once messed up my older preferences etc.

    The functionality inDraw is ridiculously bad, but the brushes are very good. Better then most apps. Should have known better than to trust Adobe.

    You don't need to worry about this. I use CC and CS6 on the same computer every day at work and have never had a problem. I have had multiple versions of Adobe applications installed over the years. Preferences are saved in completely different folders, by version of Illustrator/PS/whatever. There is no way one set could affect the other.

    Well, that would be one concern less, but still... No paid CC, no vector export from Draw. Was hoping someone could log his Illustrator into CC using my account, pull in the artwork and mail it to me.

    Can you export SVG, or is it only PNG? I have never used SVG, don't know much about it, but it is a Scalable Vector Graphic, so you have be able to get lines and point out if it.

    As PNG, you can open that in Illustrator CS6 and do a Live Trace on it. You won't get the same vector data (Illustrator will trace around the strokes and fills), and sometimes Live Trace can be wobbly around the edges, but it would be true vector art.
