Pricing and system requirements
A Creative Cloud Connected Paper Tablet costs $34.95. Moleskine’s Pen+ Ellipse costs $179.

The Moleskine+ Extension for Illustrator is free, and is compatible with Illustrator 2017+, but is currently available only for macOS: a Windows version is due “soon”.


Adobe has teamed up with physical notebook firm Moleskine to launch the Moleskine Paper Tablet – Creative Cloud Connected edition, a new ‘smart notebook’ designed to work with Adobe Illustrator.

Artists can create pen-and-paper sketches in the notebook using Moleskine’s Pen+ Ellipse digital pen, then tap the symbols at the top of each page to send the design to Adobe’s software.

The new product – part of an ongoing collaboration between the two firms – was actually announced last week, but with all the news coming out of GDC 2019, we’ve only just got around to covering it.

A new Moleskine Paper Tablet targeted at designers, not note-takers
Moleskine’s Paper Tablet range is a series of physical notebooks the shape and size of digital tablets.

An infra-red camera in the accompanying Pen+ Ellipse smart pen tracks subtle patterns printed on the paper, enabling the pen to store a digital copy of anything drawn physically in the notebook.

Moving the pen over a printed symbol at the top corner of the page transfers the digital copy to a desktop PC or laptop via Bluetooth.

Moleskine has been selling the notebooks for a few years now, although in a form primarily targeted at general note-taking and doodling.

In contrast, the new Creative Cloud Connected edition is targeted at graphics professionals, with the design being exported to Illustrator as editable vectors, complete with a history stack.
