I am trying to export Ireland Country Map on top of Satellite / Topographic base map layer in ArcGIS Pro in .AIX format to use in Adobe Illustrator. I have ArcGIS for Creative Cloud extension as well. The Problem is that when I export the Map Layout in .AIX format and Import in Adobe Illustrator I get the file that is not fully covered and missing the vector shapes.

enter image description here

As like the Screenshot there is a angled boundary shape in Illustrator. What I want is like this -

I tried several times with all the methods and customization but same result.

Can anybody help me resolving this?

I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.5 and Illustrator 2020.

  • Is this specific to this data/layout? Was there any update being done to the Illustrator post-installation? Aug 23, 2021 at 22:05
  • @YogeshChavan I tried with other data and layout but there was no issue. But yes the Other data has lot more less features than this. I think this is a problem related to what Jeremy Wright said ...

  • Possibly yes, check if an update or new installation can fix this. Aug 24, 2021 at 12:52

You might need to update to a newer version of ArcGIS Pro/Maps for Adobe.

Illustrator has a limit of around 32k vertices in a shape, and I know we put in some changes in later versions of Pro that dice these polygons if there is more vertices than can be consumed.
