Adobe Illustrator exportTo export vector objects as path: From Edit mode select File->Export to Illustrator. There are many flavors of Adobe Illustrator and for compatibility reasons with other applications we decided to go with Illustrator 8 format. In some applications you need to specify the version as Adobe Illustrator 8.0 during import file type.The files were tested in: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Fireworks, Xara Designer PRO. (Note: the UltraSNAP version 4.5 improves XARA compatibility and now drag and drop also works)SVG export (new in 4.7)To export vector objects as SVG paths: From Edit mode select File->Export Paths to SVG Not all software would import AI format and for that we added SVG export. This is a straightforward format and we used only the very core that is compatible across many other applications.The files were tested in: Xara Designer PRO, Brother PE-Design (embroidery), Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, Vectric AspirePaste vectors to Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Fireworks and Adobe PhotoshopAdobe products will recognize illustrator format in clipboard so you can easily paste vector shapes from UltraSNAP. In editing mode select Edit->Copy w/ Transparency-> Copy Selection as Vector (Illustrator format) and then just paste them in Adobe product.Note, only the shapes and basic color will be pasted. The special effects you can get in UltraSnap cannot be pasted as vectors. For that you need to use 32-PNG or 32-DIB. In general Adobe Illustrator clipboard format works mostly in Adobe products.Paste object with transparencyYou can now paste selected objects from Ultrasnap to other applications as bitmaps using full transparency. You need to copy it in appropriate format as there is not yet commonly agreed system:Edit->Copy w/ Transparency-> Copy Selection As 32-bit PNG (or 32-bit DIB)Some applications will be able to paste 32-bit PNG, some will work with 32-bit DIB (also known as DIB5). Some application may understand DIB5 but will paste it as 24-bit.For example:32-bit PNG copy/paste: Adobe Fireworks, Microsoft office, Affinity Photo32-bit DIB (DIB5) copy/paste: XARA Designer PROSome applications will be not able to paste with transparency regardless what you choose: for example Adobe Photoshop will recognize 32-bit DIB but paste it as normal 24-bit DIB - until they fix it.Drag & Drop TrayNew in version 4.7. Even though some applications support SVG or AI format, they will often not allow copy and paste these formats directly so previously you had to export your objects from UltraSnap then open them in the other applications.This is now greatly enhanced with the new D&D Tray that allows you to directly drag and drop selected vector objects from UltraSnap to other applications in different vector or bitmap formats without saving the intermediate file. The tray will stay on top of other window so it is easy to drag the icon from the tray to your application.Tested in: Vectric Aspire, Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, Xara Designer and Web and many others.Color TraceWe had shape trace for some time, but in 4.8 we added full color trace. This is suitable for graphics images, but also for photos (tracing will create interesting poster like effects on photos). As with the shape trace, this has been fine-tuned for screen sized graphics, something you can capture from web pages.
