Renaming Artboards is a very annoying thing to do and it would be so much less stressful if Adobe could make a way to rename multiple Artboards at once or automatically.
I haven't found any other way to do this than to download a plugin, I don't like plugins and I believe this would be very beneficiary for many Illustrator users.
The thing is Artboard names are a crucial way to streamline project with many different sizes or colours. And to keep your folders organized.
For example, macOS has a reasonably good renaming tool in finder.
I'm sorry if such a feature already exists in Illustrator and I would love to hear how it works and where to find it.
Yes, there is currently no out-of-box function.
But there are already dozens of renaming scripts here on the forum - how would you like to rename? From what … to?
And last but not least you can vote for example here: Illustrator.uservoice.com | feature requests | Advanced Rename Tools for Artboards
This is the better place for feature requests.
Yes i know there are many scripts out there. But i just think this is a feature almost everyone will use so why not improve the way naming works at the moment
Honestly? Personally, I never had to rename an artboard - the only exceptions were tests with newly created scripts (for others).
Better ask what I personally rarely do with Illustrator: I rarely work with artboards.
But you haven't answered my question yet.
"… how would you like to rename? From what … to? …"
It shouldn't be too difficult to recreate an older script for such requirements. Here's a good basis for that:
In addition, you can change the name of the artboards in the Artboard Panel at any time - or the name of the active artboard in the Control Bar while the Artboard Tool is active.
Your best option if you don't want to use a script is to post a feature request or vote for an existing one on Uservoice.
Like I wrote before.
