Custom Bevel profile in Effects-3D-Bevel is GONE
Illustrator used to have the ability to create customer Bevel profiles ( in the Bevels.ai file in /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator 23/en_US/Symbols ). HOWEVER, the feature is now gone! Please give us the option to create custom Bevels, again! Thank you.
Last year, 2018, I created a object and gave it a 3D custom bevel, and now I can do nothing with that object. Whenever I try to do something with it Illustrator crashes. I couldn't figure out what was going on until I tried creating a custom Bevel again. There is no way to create a custom Bevel! When I open the "Bevels.ai" file from last year, I can see the custom Bevel profile I created in the Symbols panel, but it's nowhere to be found in the Effect-3D Bevels list.
Turns out that the directory/location of the correct "Bevels.ai" has been changed since 2018. The correct location of the "Bevels.ai" file which works is here:
/Applications/Adobe Illustrator CC 2019/Support Files/Resources/en_US/Bevels.ai
Modifying this file does NOT work:
/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator 23/en_US/Symbols/Bevels.ai
The solution to this problem was shown on this Feature-Request here:
The attached screen-capture is where the custom Bevel would show up (from modifying the Bevels.ai file with a custom new Symbol).
