New file packaging
Use the Package feature to easily hand off Illustrator files to production by automatically collecting the necessary fonts, linked graphics, and a package report in a single folder.
One of the most oft-requested features by Illustrator users is now available for Illustrator CS6! We are lovingly calling it "Package Files" since it's an easy way to automatically collect everything necessary to work with your Illustrator document into a single folder. In that folder, you'll find everything your document depends on: linked files, embedded fonts, static images, etc. By having Illustrator create this packaged folder, you can archive the folder, store it in a code repository or share with members of your team - especially handy since these new sharing capabilities are available for Creative Cloud.
Here is a quick video of the Package Files feature within Adobe Illustrator CS6, showing how this new feature makes your design process even simpler. It is already available exclusively to Adobe Creative Cloud members. Remember, by subscribing to Creative Cloud, you get these types of nimble product enhancements often and easily.
New unembedded images
Quickly unembed images that have been placed and embedded into an Illustrator file for quick edits or for use outside Illustrator. Automatically link them to their extracted PSD or TIFF files.
Links panel enhancements
Efficiently track and access complete information on any artwork placed within an Illustrator file, directly from the Links panel.
