Adding Number to filename exporting using artboards

For decades, if I export to PNG from Illustrator and use the option "User Artboard" Illustrator added the artboardnumber to the filename - even if there was only one artboard.

Thus, all exported files have this "-01" at the end.

 

Was this behaviour changed with one of the last updates? Today all files I exported with "User Artboard" didn't have the "-01" at the end of the filename.

The added -01 is one of the most disputed thing around exporting documents. So many people complaining about it. You're like the first person I'm seeing that wants to have it. (please don't get me wrong: I can understand both positions and would not want to decide whether that needs to be there)

 

This behaviour might actually have been changed.

Hello @konradSL,

 

Sorry to hear about this experience. I would request you to update Illustrator to the latest version and share your observations.

 

Looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks,
Anubhav

Nope. Updating doesn't solve the problem.
