Where are plugins in Illustrator?

Last updated on May 15, 2023 @ 9:27 am

Illustrator plugins are files that are used to extend the capabilities of Illustrator. They can be used to add features to the program or to solve specific problems.

There are many different plugins available, and they can be found online or in the software’s installation directory. These plugins can usually be accessed only from within Adobe Illustrator.

Once you have installed a plugin, you can find it in the “Window > Extensions” menu. The “Extensions” menu contains a list of all the plugins that are currently installed in the program.

PRO TIP: It’s important to note that not all plugins will work with all versions of Adobe Illustrator, so you should make sure to check the compatibility of a plugin before installing it. Additionally, some plugins may require additional setup or configuration before they can be used.

Another place where you can find your plugins is the Creative Cloud Desktop Application. You can also use the online platform. In the Creative Cloud interface, just go to the navigation bar at the top and select the “Stock & Marketplace” tab.

From there, go to the “Plugins” tab and filter out the Illustrator plugins using the filter section on the left panel. With this, you can find all the plugins that are currently installed in your Illustrator application.

NOTE: Keep in mind that some plugins may require payment or a subscription to access, and not all plugins are available in the Creative Cloud marketplace. Additionally, some plugins may need to be downloaded and installed manually. However, always be cautious when downloading and installing plugins from third-party websites.

In conclusion, plugins are a valuable part of Illustrator, and incorporating plugins into your Illustrator workflow can greatly improve your efficiency and creativity. These plugins can be found in the “Extensions” menu, and on the “Creative Cloud Desktop” platform. If you’re new to using plugins in Illustrator, take some time to explore the Adobe Creative Cloud Marketplace and discover what plugins are available. Experiment with different plugins and see how they can improve your workflow!
