Eport As Artbord Naming Error

With the new Illustrator Version V26.5 there is a Problem with the Export As Module

 

Please confim this by other users, maybe it is just a problem on our machines,

 

Usually we name our artboards even if we have only one to transport information about what we are about to export. So in our case it would be [Basename of the AI]_[Artboardname].jpg for example.

 

If you have only one Artboard in the Illustrator Document and you try to export it as Jpg/Png/Whatever 

you are promptet with the Save as Dialog, Where you can check "Export Artboards"

 

In previous version that named the files like we explaint prior like [filename]_[Artboard].fileextention

and this works if you have multiple artboard.

 

but if you have only on artboard the naming function is not working correctly. It even asks you if you like to replace the file that is in the filesystem that is named [Basename of the AI]_[Artboardname].jpg

but it only generates a file that is named [Basename of the AI].jpg 

 

On previous Versions this worked at somepoint.

There was a change in the most recent update that stopped appending artboard names to filenames when only one artboard is being exported. This was a response to user requests, but evidently wasn't very well thought through.

 

This is obviously not ideal for people with workflows similar to yours. You can sign a request to change it here:

I understand that some people dont use artboards but why do they then use the option to use artbords in the export ...

so the most logical way would be export as is without artbords -> filename 

export with artboard -> filename + artboard. 

😃 anyway. thanks for the Link to the poll about the Feature.
