    I don't use AI, Google is your friend. Maybe try the Adobe forums.

    What about the Import-Export folder in PS? Assuming that you want to import it into PS from Illustrator - not really sure if that's the gist of the question

    Basically its a vector mask ie.just like brushes or an action so it needs to go somewhere
    ie.brushes plugin goes to the brushes folder and actions go to its actions folder but i cant find where
    a mask would go

    Save it as an ai document, native Illustrator doc with an extension of .ai. Just opening Ilustrator now so will check and get back.

    Go to help..."saving as a vector mask" and go on from there. I would save it as a ai document but there are other ways, swg for instance, depends what you want it for, have a read, if it is a graphic that you want to use in another program and wish it to have a transparent b/g then save it as an eps file.

    Quote from the help file
    "SVG is a vector format that produces high-quality, interactive web graphics. There are two versions of the SVG formats: SVG and Compressed SVG (SVGZ). SVGZ can reduce file sizes by 50% to 80%; however, you cannot edit SVGZ files using a text editor."

    Hop this helps.
