Tired of having to right-click your .ai layer to make it into a shape layer? Use Convert!

If any of your Illustrator layers have non-100% opacity or go outside of the frame, you’ve probably noticed that converting brings in an empty artboard artifact that gets in the way. No more! Remove it with Remove Artboard.

Now, your new shape layers probably have a tonne of strokes and fills that need adjusting– that’s what Select Fills and Select Strokes are for. One-click buttons to select all fills or all strokes in your comp, or hold shift to find any fills or strokes with the same colour as the selected.

The new toolbar UI is full responsive, adapting to any size or shape and granting you the ability to hide any buttons you don’t think you’d use.
