I am working with someone who likes to lớn use Photoshop for their scientific figure layouts, but I prefer Illustrator. When I finish with editing in Illustrator I want to give it khổng lồ them such that it is ready lớn go for editing in Photoshop và will not cause them problems or confusion. Can I convert my Illustrator tệp tin into a Photoshop document such that things lượt thích text, arrows, lines remain editable? I vị not want them converted into some abstract "shape" when imported/converted into Photoshop.

Simply choose file > Export... And choose "Photoshop (psd)" from the drop down menu. Then click the EXPORT button và a second dialog will pop up....
