eeeeeeeeeehhhhhhh Not sure...one is brush to paint with, the other are ribbons guess they are vector. As I said, I can see them and use them both in AD, but both are invisible in AP.
.afbrushes can be used in both, I get the messages in AP they are installed, but I can't see them

you will not be able to use vector brushes in Photo...it has no vector brush tool as far as I know...
it is a pixel brush app only.    I think.   so I don't know where it would put vector brushes.

is there any way you could give me the link and I will look and see if I can work out what is happening.
you could email me it  if its a bit  errrrm awkward

Grethe,

Both of these zips are vector brushes that can only be used with the Vector Brush Tool in AD.

I downloaded both and installed them in AD and they work just fine.

Yes, Lynn, they work perfect in AD! I was just hoping they would in AP too. Hoping for too much, I guess.  :legs:
Thank for testing, Lynn!  :xmas37:

Grethe, I haven't tried this yet but think a workaround would be to make some Ribbons in AD then Rasterise them and import them into AP.

Yes, I think you can to that, Shez. Or you could just switch between the apps (as they call them now), think that will be the easiest way.
