Previous/Next Artboard hotkeys should be able to keep zoom
Right now Ai also does 'Fit Artboard in Window' when any of artboard navigation hotkeys are used. I’d like also be able to keep zoom level when navigating artboards.
Dave, there is workaround I can offer, a free set of custom scripts by 3flab:
Scroll down to View section.
You can wrap these into actions and use instead of native hotkeys.
They are now perfect, but worth trying.
Please comment back if they help and how does it differ from what you want.
Looking for a way to move to the same zoomed in area on each artboard. I work for a major sports apparel manufacturer and use multi-artboards every day. We are make revisions frequently. Artwork is zoomed in to see complete picture because some of these details/revisions are small. Artwork instance is in the same location on every artboard.
There is a workaround we can use, with a set of scripts:
https://onthehead.com/ais/ — scroll down to View section
Display next/prev artboard in center
Display neighbor artboard in center
Display first/last artboard in center
Not exactly that, but does the trick. Unfortunately, this is not that fast as native commands. Still worth trying.

Yes to navigating artboards at the current zoom level!
