Please make sure that all Adobe Illustrator applications are completely closed.

Step2

Download the plug-in data from the download page.

Step3

Copy the necessary files in the downloaded plug-in data folder.

Step4

Save (paste) the necessary files in the appropriate places.

All the steps are simple, but since it is not possible to copy and paste multiple required files at once, please repeat step3 and step4 and do the copy and paste process.

Please note that the number of files required differs for each plug-in product.

  • Files in the “Prefs” folder and other related files

It is necessary to save all the necessary files in the downloaded plug-in data folder in the correct location.
Please note that if even one file is missing, such as only the .aip file or only the related files, the plug-in may not work properly.

Be careful not to delete other plug-in’s files you need.
