Copy to desktop

OK, you don't have to copy the vector to the desktop but it is probably the easiest location. You could also drag the path from Illustrator artboard to the any folder. It creates a file called 'picture clipping'.


You can then open that in another app


1) select the artwork

2) drag from the artboard to the desktop or to a folder


Note: the picture clipping file can be renamed to a PDF file, it is a PDF format file (why it doesn't make that clear is baffling)

You can also do the same with symbols and not just standard paths. The symbols, however, lose all their structure when you add effects in Logoist - you will just end up with a metal or border effect but none of the separate paths
