  1. Start Illustrator or Photoshop.
  2. Click Window and select Extensions.
  3. Choose ArcGIS Maps for Adobe Creative Cloud.
  4. In the Mapboards or Compilation window, click the menu button Menu button.
  5. Select Settings.

    The Settings window provides the following options:

    • General—Participate in the Esri user improvement program and manage message dialog boxes and ToolTips.

      You can also set the output directory to where the synced maps are saved on your local machine. The default location is [local user]/Documents/Adobe/.

      If this folder does not exist, it will be created the first time a map is synced. If there are issues in creating or saving a file to this location, change the specified location to a directory where you have permissions to save files on your local machine.

    • Mapboards—Define the scale display.
    • Libraries—Provide custom Illustrator libraries for your map. These include customized symbology, brushes, and swatches.
