Are you collaborating with a team in the Creative Cloud? Are you working with a shared library that contains a large number of assets? Do you scroll endlessly looking for the assets you need? Or do you use the search field in the CC Library panel to search for those assets and save yourself a lot of time?

Here’s some good news! As you start typing in the CC Libraries panel search field, the resulting asset window will continually filter down the possible matches as more letters are added. The image below shows how this works. Of course, defining and using naming conventions and knowing exactly what asset name to type is a better solution.

From the drop-down menu, you can choose to search in the current library selected or in all the libraries associated with your Adobe account. You can also choose to search Adobe Stock and view the same results as those you’d see on the Adobe Stock website. From your CC Library, previews of any found Adobe Stock assets can be downloaded or an image can be licensed.

Having an organized shared CC Library with properly named assets isn’t an easy thing to accomplish when working in teams, so this search feature can be a real time-saver!
