Artboard search function
Add a search bar to the Artboards window
Camille Barennes commented
Il m'arrive très souvent d'avoir besoin de rechercher un plan de travail dans un fichier Illustrator qui en contient beaucoup. Cette fonctionnalité serait tout simplement géniale !
There is a free script you can use for that:
It does exactly the thing you want. If it does not — you can always ask the developer to add more (like regular expressions support — I believe you might want that).
Sure it does not mean Adobe should not add it. So voted.

Pouvoir dans la palette "Plans de travail" Faire un tri ainsi qu'une recherche sur les plans de travail.
Ce qui motive ma demande est que je nomme mes plans de travail en fonction des supports utilisés pour l'impression grand format ou avec des référence produits dans le cas d'image destinée aux sites internet.
Lorsque l'on à plus de 300 plans de travail pour des images produits qui mêlent vecteur et photos, la navigation fini par être longue.
Tri et recherche seraient un plus.

Would be hugely useful for my workflow.
I'm surprised Adobe recently added search to Layers, and left Artboards unsearchable 🤔
Stephan, works fine for me, no errors in the latest Ai version.
You should log an issue about this problem directly in the script’s repository here: https://github.com/creold/illustrator-scripts/issues
Please provide some details there, a test file, and your full specs.

Stepah, the script still works. The current version is 0.1.4. I used it a lot in March. I need information about bugs. You can create an issue on GitHub.
A search field in the Artboards palette would solve the problem. Unfortunately, the script from Sergey does not seem to work any more. Illustrator is just throwing errors.

You are a hero. Thank you for all your hard work improving illustrator so it saves countless hours for people worldwide via your scripts.
I'm going to reach out and try to help you somehow for saving me so much time.
We can't wait for adobe to make all these improvements.
@Sergey Osokin like all your scripts, this is very good! I love the live search as you type in the artboard name. It solves a lot of problems with the whole Illustrator artboard misery. Thank you very much for making this available!
I wanted to make a donation via PayPal but it is currently restricted. I am sorry this is affecting you personally!

I created a script for navigating to artboards by their name or size
There are many ways to implement this in illustrator.
Am I right thinking that we all mean the same filter search Photoshop has?
What other options do you think are needed?

Please! I now have to look for alternatives for icon libraries.
Yes please. I am constantly looking for artboards in a large icon design file. No workarounds for this either so this would be a welcome improvement.
Very helpful suggestion. I have tried numerous times to search my illustrator file for a specific artboard or item name within an artboard. This would help a lot.
It would be very helpful to alphabetically sort the actual artboard in the document as well as in the artboard window. Search bar would also help with organizing large quantities of artboards.
Asset Export: Add the ability to select portions of an artboard and have it automatically retain the artboard name when pulled into asset export instead of a generic "Asset xxx" name.

Would also be brilliant for icon creation, especially now that we have the possibility for up to 999 artboards per file.
This would be very useful. For example: I have a lot of artboards with technical drawings of products. I want to be able to search in the artboard panel by product code, so that I can easily find the artboard I am looking for
