Objects are all the elements represented in the Layers panel and on the canvas, including groups, symbols, lines, and shapes. They’re sometimes referred to as Layers.

Vector objects can be scaled infinitely with no loss of quality or fidelity, while keeping the file size small. For more information, see the more in-depth chapter about differences between vector and raster graphics here.
