Multiple Asset Download from CC Libraries
Why can't we download multiple assets from CCLibraries, is so annoying and inconvenient to have to download one by one .
I am a freelance designer and brand manager that is responsible for setting up a lot of brand collateral and assets for multiple brands and then at some point I have to hand it all over to a clients, outsourced teams or new creative team members.
I love working with CC Libraries, and usually house all my assets there, but it is quite complex to export everything I need for creative handovers.
I also don't want to share my CC Libraries with everyone I work with because I'm only a temporary member of the team.
So my idea to make everyone's lives easier is to insert a function to download a brand's entire CC lIbrary as Packaged Assets from the dashboard, it would even be more amazing if you could also import such a zipped folder into CC when receiving such a package.

And not all vector/raster assets. INDT files cannot be exported, either. You can open and then save as, but that seems like an extra, unnecessary step.

Waiting for this feature request, if you need to quickly export a selection of Vector/Raster assets at once from CCLibs, here a workaround (not prefect but it can help):
1- Open InDesign and create a new Document (no matter which size or intent)
2- Select the Assets you need to export from the CC Lib panel (with the classical Shift for a continuous selection and Cmd/Ctrl for discontinuous)
3- Drag and Drop this selection on the InDesign page/canvas to load your cursor with your assets (cursor thumbnail preview + the number of assets)
4- Press Shift+Cmd (Mac) / Shift+Ctrl (Win) and click and drag to draw a placement grid. It's a 3x3 grid by default but if — before releasing the click – you press the right arrow key and the top arrow key, you'll add columns and rows.
5- Save and use the File > Package feature. It will create a folder with a copy of your document plus a subfolder containing your Linked Images… so your assets.

I would be great to be able to export a selection of assets at once from the CCLibs.
We currently can do it one-by-one from the Creative Cloud Desktop App but not at once and only vector or raster assets in there original file format (not ASE, snippet…).
So here the ideal scenario:
1- Export a selection of assets at once from everywhere (CCLibs, CC Desktop and assets.adobe.com)
2- Export images as… (convert images as PNG, JPG, PDF…)
3- Export selected assets as PDF Style Guide

Hey Emily... can we have the old site back until you get this one working properly, you know since it's already July and there's still no search? What Kerry mentioned is just part of the missing functionality. For instance, to empty the archive we have to tediously delete 100 items at a time. That's ridiculous.
Agree. The search feature was the main reason we were using this. I was so disappointed to see it's gone. Not sure why they would go live without it.
Change it back to the way t was! Where is the search feature? Why cant i download more than 1 thing at a t time. This is the worst!
