I want to automate the PNG export for this dataset:
I made an xml file of the dataset, then loaded it with Window -> Variables -> Load Variable Library ... and linked my text field to the variable uscity.
And I made an Action for File -> Export (Use Artboards is checked):
Then from the Actions window I opened Batch... with this settings:
But the problem is that all PNGs are exported with the same file name (US_cities_Number1.png) and so after each export I get the question
if I want to replace my PNG.
The name is always US_cities_Number1.png for all exported PNGs.My Ai file has the name US_cities.ai and my artboard name is Number1.
So how can I export a dataset with a batch with automated different file namesfor each PNG so I haven't to copy the exported PNG to a different folderto rescue it before each replacement question?
The best would be if I could integrate the object variable name of the dataset automaticallyin the exported PNG file so I would get these file names automatically if I start the batch:
But if that isn't possible that the files get an automated counter:
Can this be done?And if yes how can it be done?
Have something to add?
