Do you have the right answer? If you do other users will benefit from your contribution, share your knowledge with the community!


We need to see the layer structure of 2 items:

(a) Your ${css|styles} folder

(b) Your rollover element

This will allow us to easily identify the issue.

This is likely a layer issue with your CSS styles, can you provide a screenshot of your layers? Were you able to get your screenshots working?

After confirming with Dev we have a few points that may help you understand AI vs PSD exports.

1. Not all Layer Effects are parsed in AI
(ETA: Next Release)

Dev plans to add SVG Filters for other effects as this is naturally what Illustrator does.

Photoshop and InDesign have full access to Layer Effects.

2. Illustrator does not use shapes naturally, everything is a vector.

For complex shapes in AI, enable [SVG Paths] to render all shapes as vectors.

3. Illustrator renders very differently

To get correct element (Shape, Image, Text) rendering you may have to try different organizations of your Layers/PageItems.  

The plugin will always try to collect Vector PageItems and group them as an image to prevent excessive assets - regroup your items into Layer Folders as required.

We do not suggest you make your Google Drive links public unless you are sharing your creative with the community.  We have removed the links for your security.

These are very specific issues and we recommend you take a look at our Premium Support for a full review of your AI document. Some questions we can answer, others require additional support.

Keep in mind our Illustrator version is not as powerful as Photoshop or InDesign - but Illustrator is 5x faster at exporting!

1. Hover Effects: //

2 – 5. Premium support: //

6. Web Forms: // or you can get our Premium Email Contact templates for PSD and AI: //

7 – 8. Premium support: //

If these are the only items in question to review, then you can go with Support Basic - if you would like a full review of your design, then go with Support Advanced.
