Illustrator :: When Record Save For Web Action - Export Artboard In 3 File Sizes

Oct 4, 2013

When I record a save for web action that exports my artboard in 3 file sizes. 100%, 200% and 400% it works for the first few files.

Then suddenly after a while the first export changes its width and height from 100% to 111%, but not just 111% width and height equally. No it pulls it out of proportion too.
When I manually enter 100% again it all pops back to the correct aspect ration.The 200% and 400% still behave as expected.
If I rerecord it it starts working again. But that defeats the purpose.

When saving for web or exporting an artboard is there any way to pre-populate the save file name dialog box with the artboard's given name. It would save having to re-name the file and make good use of that metadata.

Illustrator :: Masking Off-artboard Artwork During Export / Save

Mar 23, 2014

I've created an image that has some bleeds and needs to be saved as a JPEG for web display.  If I just export it (or save for web and devices), the off-artboard stuff shows up in the saved image (which, of course, is bigger than the artboard).  I've created a mask layer that masks the visibility of the excess artwork within AI and the saved file, but the off-artboard area occupied by the masked artwork is still there in the saved image.  How can I non-destructively hide this stuff during saves, saving just the artboard?

Illustrator :: When Saving A File Using Save Option / File Is Not Staying At Size Of Artboard

Jun 18, 2013

am having an Issue with CS6 when saving files. When saving a file using the 'Save' option (not 'Save As') the file is not staying at the size of the artboard as it should, it is however being aurtomatically cropped down to the actual artwork size. This is causing issues with the Process we work with as we need the file to stay at the artboard size.If I click 'Save As' and change the Adobe PDF Preset to 'Press Quality' then this works, however this means that every file we save(which is quite alot in a day) means we have to go through the 'Save As' option and manually change each save.why this has suddenly started to happen with our Illustrators and do you know how to fix this so that it stays at the Artboard size when 'Save' is used?

Illustrator :: Action Won't Record New Text

May 26, 2013

I am trying to record an action in Illustrator, and most steps work, except when I decide to create a new text layer, I select the type tool, type something into my document, and select another tool to complete the operation, nothing shows up in the action panel, it's as if Illustrator didn't see it. It works fine in Photoshop though.

Illustrator :: Can Record Text Navigation In Action

Sep 20, 2012

I'm trying to record an Action in AI that, when editing text,

(1) goes to the end of the current line ([End]),
(2) goes to the beginning of the current line while selecting the text ([Shift]+[Home]),
(3) applies a swatch,
(4) moves down three lines ([Down], [Down], [Down]), etc.

When I record this in an action, only the Apply Swatch command appears in the Action. Is this just how-it-is or is there a way to record text navigation in an action?

Photoshop :: Save As Action / Resize One Image To 4 Different Sizes

Aug 10, 2012

I am trying to resize one image to 4 different sizes. So far I have an action created to do all of this, with only one minor problem. Whenever it saves the images, they are always saved as the wrong file name. I was wondering if there would be a way to keep the original file name, but then add a suffix to it- all within the action.
If it's not possible to automatically add a suffix, how do I keep the original file name when it's saving within the action?
I found an older post (URL...) that was very similar to what I'm trying to accomplish, but the question was never fully resolved.

Illustrator :: Adding Artboard Actions To Action?

Jan 10, 2013

Here's what I want the action to do:
Clear the selected object
Fit the Artboard to the Selected Object
Save for Web and Devices
I can get it to clear and save but I'll be darned if I can get the Fit the Artboard to the Selected Object to register in the recording of the action.  No matter what shortcuts I use, menues I use it just won't record it.  Is this just a thing Illustrator won't do or any I just missing something?
I do those 3 things listed above ALL the time and it would be nice it I could make those 3 things into 1 action, then add that action to a hot key on my tablet.

Illustrator :: Setting Up Action To Save Files In CS4 - File Saving Without Extension

Sep 4, 2012

I'm trying to set up an action to save a batch of files I creating using the variables tool (as detailed in this video: [URL]), I'll go into the Actions window, and record myself  saving the current file in .Ai format, and then stop recording. Seems pretty simple, but when I set that action to run a batch on my dataset it saves all the files without an extension. Am I missing another step where I set the file format that the action is supposed to save with? I'm confused. I've tried this using a few different file formats and they all come up the same.
this is what my Output looks like:

Illustrator :: CS6 - Export JPG Without Adding Artboard To Name?

Jan 14, 2013

Is there a way in Illustrator CS6 to export as jpg with Use Artboard check to not have illustrator add the name of the artboard to your file name?
Example -
File name ""
Export jpg "redboat.jpg" with Use Artboard option selected
File name becomes "redboat-01.jpg"
This is not a huge problem when I only have 1 or two files but when I have to rename 100+ file names it can be a pain.
I do understand that I can batch rename in Bridge but it would be nice if I could have these files saved without the artboard name on them.

Illustrator Scripting :: Export Artboard As A JPEG

Jan 29, 2014

See title - is this possible?
I've made this small script to test a few things, before moving on to the bigger stuff (some of it have been cut out, since it's not important):

        var exportOptions = new ExportOptionsJPEG();
        var type = ExportType.JPEG;
        var fileSpec = new File(dest);
        exportOptions.antiAliasing = false;
        exportOptions.qualitySetting = 70;
        exportOptions.artboardRange = "3";
        app.activeDocument.exportFile( fileSpec, type, exportOptions );
I'm trying to export artboard #3 as a JPEG. But it doesn't work.

According to the scripting reference guide, most of the "ExportOptions"-functions support the artboardRange-parameter, but alas - JPEG does not.
Is there another way to do this? Right now I'm only getting all the artboards into a single JPEG-file, which is not what I'm searching for

Illustrator :: CS6 Does Not Save PDFs To Artboard

Apr 16, 2013

The first time it happened, I uninstalled AI and did a fresh install which fixed it for a short time. When I save a PDF out of AI, it does not save to the artboard constraints. This is a screen shot of my AI document which has 2 pages.

When I save as PDF, this is what the file looks like:

(Pg 1)
(Pg 2)
After the original file has been saved (incorrectly) I can open it and save it again and it will be fine.

Illustrator :: Why Is There A Limit To PNG Export Image Sizes

Jun 26, 2012

This came to my attention around the CS4 era, but I've recently noticed still remains with CS6 - but just why is there a limit as to what image sizes we can export PNG files at [AKA around the 8000x8000 area at 400dpi for me]?
Surely as long as we have the computing power [and RAM] than we should be able to export beyond the 10000/400dpi pixels range [or does it depend on the computer]?

Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 :: Export To JPEG File Sizes?

problems with the Export to JPEG dialog.

1. It does not show the original file size. At one time I used this as a cue to see if I had forgotten to resample.

2. After the installation of version 16.3, the displayed compressed file size is no longer accurate. It varies from perfect to reading 25% too high.

Illustrator :: CS6 No Longer Export Images Out At Their Boundary / Artboard Size?

Nov 7, 2012

I recently upgraded to Illustrator CS6, and suddenly clients have been remarking that the file sizes are wrong or there's "a ton of white space around the logo." I checked it out, and sure enough, it appears that whenever I export a file, it does not crop it to the image boundary like it used to, even if I had manually adjusted the artboard to fit closely around it. After a bit of trial and error, I discovered that I have to click "Use Artboards" on the Export dialog each time. The super annoying part is that it doesn't STAY checked, AND it adds a number to the end of the file name. So I often forget to check it (not used to the extra step in workflow), and if I make a modification to the file, I can't just export over the previous version. It requires me to export it, go find it in finder, and manually delete the extra number off the file name. The extra steps are adding way too much time when I'm saving out many files. I'm about ready to go back to my previous version just from this alone.  
Is there an easier way to do this? It seems like the addition of this feature would only cause extra problems...

I made an action that I have to use for many images. The action creates an image, saves it, then closes it. The problem is when I try to run the action, it saves over the previous image. Instead of making new files, it just saves over the same one over and over. Is there a way to make it automatically save in succession?? (image001, image002, image003, etc.).
