Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone has a script they'd like to share which would rename all artboards in a document with their size?

Thanks


Eric

Hi ericsoup,

This works for your artboard[0]

var AB = app.activeDocument.artboards[0];

var ABR = AB.artboardRect;

AB.name = (ABR[2] - ABR[0]).toFixed(3) + " points  × " + (ABR[1] - ABR[3]).toFixed (3) + " points";

All you have to do is to add a loop through your artboards.

Have fun

… and a little change for getting mm instead of points:

var aDoc = app.activeDocument;

for (i=0; i<aDoc.artboards.length; i++) {

    var AB = aDoc.artboards

    var ABR = AB.artboardRect; 

    AB.name = ((ABR[2] - ABR[0])*0.3527778).toFixed(1) + " mm  × " + ((ABR[1] - ABR[3])*0.3527778).toFixed (1) + " mm";

}

Have fun
