Is it possible to have "use artboards" automatically selected as a default when exporting files from Illustrator? I keep forgetting to select it and it's frustrating!
Thanks in advance!
I think this is not possible. But, when you use the newest version of Illustrator CC, you can better use File > Export for Screens if you want to export to PNG, JPG, SVG and even PDF. It's much more intuitive, and you won't forget to check the "use artboards" box I hope this'll help you
I have the very latest version of Illustrator and still have this same problem - so frustrating to remember to check that box every time. After all these years since this comment in 2017 how has it still not been made possible to default the artboard only setting as a preference?
The export for screens solution proposed here doesn't wotk for me as I need to save as high res.
This is obnoxious. How is it that they don't allow for basic customizations like this, when we pay such outrageous monthly fees for the privilege of using their products?
Hey, adobe, listen to your custoemrs.
All I want to do is have the default file type be .dxf instead of .png when I do an "export as" task.
They can't even get that right either.
Same here! I don't think I can come up with a use case for NOT using the artboard. Adobe, seriously, change this.
