How do I see the Weave tools, Knit tools, and Fashion Sketch Pen tools in the Ai toolbar in Illustrator CC2019?
In the CC2019 version of Illustrator, the Ai tool box sometimes defaults to the “Basic” setting, which will hide many of the Illustrator tools including the DesignPro Weave, Knit, and Fashion features.
The tools referred to here For Weave are the Add Element Tool, Select Element, Draw Pattern, and Dobby Magnet tools. The Knit tools here are the Knitting tool, Knit Selection tool, Knit Paint tool, and Knit Eyedropper tool. The Fashion tools are the Fashion Sketch Pen tool and the Symmetry line tool.
There a few ways to show the Aquario Design tools in the Illustrator toolbar:
- Go to the Toolbar and click the “…” at the bottom
- Click the Options icon at the top right corner
- Check off Advanced
- Go to Window>Toolbars>Advanced. This will expand the toolbox to include the DesignPro tools.
- Go to Window>Workspace>Essentials Classic. This will change the Illustrator workspace to the classic essentials setup from older versions of Illustrator, including expanding the toolbox to include the Aquario Design tools.

Aquario Design version 5.0.1 was packaged without the Aquario Design weave swatches, knit symbols and fashion sketch brushes libraries. To get them back, you can update or backdate to another release of Aquario Design OR contact the support team to manually add the libraries into your presets library.

The Fashion Pen tool and the Adobe pen tool both use paths and anchors when creating lines and shapes in a document. These lines can be filled and closed the same way. Control+Shift+A will release the pen, and anchor handles behave the same way. The main differences with Fashion Pen tool are listed below:
When making a curve, click and drag your curve in the direction you want the curve to go. You will get scalloped edges this way. You do not have to click your last anchor point to change the axis of your next curve as you move forward, simply make your next anchor point and drag the direction you want the curve to go, holding down shift will give you straight lines, not constrain your curve to 45% as in Illustrator.
