Remember the 'Use Artboard' checkbox when exporting
When I export (SVGs and other formats) I have to check "Use artboard" every time... why not just remember this setting has been checked or uncheck from before
At least I’d love to have this option sticky, for Ai to remember its state per document...
But you also say 'preview'... the Export As method does not have one. You probably mean the second dialog, 'JPEG options' or 'PNG options'? This hardly makes little sense, since it’d also require to duplicate the naming options, the artboards options... And this process has to have a standard OS dialog to pick the name and the folder, in some way, followed my format settings... The team tried to swap them in Export for Screens, when we choose the settings firsts and then can pick the folder, and this method has a LOT of backlash from users.
So I think just making an option sticky is a safe enough solution, without duplicating anything anywhere.

When exporting using Export As menu it would make sense to have the checkbox for using the artboard on by default OR have an override in the second export window that allows to crop to the artboard.

Please include a feature where the Export settings from the previous save will be remembered when exporting another file so we don't have to constantly tick the 'Use Artboard' checkbox (meaning you would only need to hit this checkbox once) when exporting multiple files.
For someone who needs to export multiple artworks with different filenames and sizes, this will help me save a great amount of time. I'm sure there are many users out there who would benefit from this feature as well.
Thank you so much for your efforts developers!
Which format do you refer to?
Export dialog has the Use Artboards option, but it can’t be applied to any format AI is capable of exporting to.
I'm working on a bunch of files that have artboard and every time I export things I have to remember to check "Use Artboards". Can this be made something that is able to be set as a default, or at least can the selection be remembered on a per-file basis based on the last export?
When exporting can we have a Use Artboards option
