Access and Save workflows
You can always choose between saving your Illustrator documents to the cloud or locally. Illustrator remembers how you saved or opened your most recently accessed document and will continue to present you with the same experience until you choose otherwise.
For more details, see Create or save cloud documents.
Autosave feature is your savior! Even if you close the Illustrator cloud document without saving it manually, the autosave feature makes sure that your latest updates are automatically saved and synced onto the cloud. Similarly, if you work on multiple documents at the same time, all your updates get autosaved when you switch between the documents.
However, autosaving a large-scale document takes time and might have performance trade-offs, so the autosave feature is currently disabled for large-scaled documents.
Linked Smart Objects are supported only on the device on which you create the cloud document. If you have used linked objects in cloud documents, then you need to embed the linked objects to avoid missing links warning when the document is opened on other devices.
