Can someone give me a high-level overview on what the process is for building a new tool in adobe Illustrator? If it's even possible.
As an example:
Topics help categorize Community content and increase your ability to discover relevant content.
App Builder is for building extensibility solutions for Experience Cloud and does not at this time support Creative Cloud products.
To build a plugin for Illustrator, you would need to use CEP. You can find more details here: https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/CEP-Resources
