Can I create an editable PDF (or .ai) file from Genesis? Something which can be modified as a Vector file in Illustrator or Photoshop?

The entire Label Display ('View Label' from within the program) can be exported as a Vector graphics file.  Once exported in this manner, the resulting .pdf file can then be opened and edited as a PDF file, in something like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.

To export the label (and other objects) as a Vector:

  1.     View the label as normal.  Specifically, click the 'View Label' button on the Recipe tab of the ribbon.
  2.     Anywhere in the whitespace of the label display, right-click.
  3.     In the right-click menu, choose Print as Vector.
  4.     In the Printer dialog that appears, select a PDF driver.  'novaPDF' is installed with Genesis, but you can use another if you have other(s) installed.
  5.     Click OK.
  6.     If the PDF driver prompts for other aspects, follow those accordingly.  For example, some may prompt for the file name & location.
  7.     Provide the resulting PDF file to your graphics person.
