Storage : storeThe new storage feature is a great way of storing the artworks for future use. You can use them to store other presets as well


You can use it to store artworks with effects attached as well as layer effects.


Storing the vector designs : arrowsThe item is stored as a shape. You can also select multiple layers (say a vector cube) and drag that to the CC library and that will be stored.


Restore work : cloudYou can restore the work from the panel - you can either get the linked artwork where the changes are reflected in the panel or you can get a disconnected artwork where any changes are not reflected in the panel


Right click the object in the CC libraries and you will see a number of options such as

place linked (linked smart object)

place layers (not linked) or hold down the alt / option key


Smart objects : cubeIf you want it as a smart object, simply select the artwork in the panel and drag - it is still linked to the panel so any changes will be reflected there. If you want to edit the path, double click on the smart object icon in the layer menu and you can then edit the layer using the direct selection tool and save the opened PSD file for the smart object


Re-define : directionYou cannot find the layer or design in the preset's panel. It is still a vector and can be re-selected by using the direct selection tool and then simply go to the edit menu and re-define it as the required preset.


If it is a cloud / place linked design then you will have to double click the little cloud icon in the layers panel and then when the related PSB file opens you can select the points then and use the edit menu and define it again.
