If you’ve ever wished you could “package” Adobe Illustrator fonts & links like in InDesign, the wait is over! There is a great little plug-in called Scoop that automates the process. While a little pricey for a single user license at $47, if you’re constantly sharing Illustrator files with linked images, it’s a life saver!

Simply load the plug-in to the plug-ins folder and restart Illustrator. When you go to the File menu, you will see a new choice called Scoop. This is grayed out if there aren’t any linked files or fonts. When you choose it, it packages all your links to a folder of your choosing.
