Artboard Numbering Error
I have a document that consists of 75 artboards but the numbering on the left shows two artboards with the same 66 number instead of artboard 65 followed by artboard 66. However on export, exporting artboard 65 Illustrator exports it normally. So it's just a visual bug.

I am having the same issue. Artboards won't export as they have the same #.
I am having the same issue as well. :(
Artboard Number 5 gets skipped, and 2 dartboard 6.

Just noticed that Illustrator CC artboard serial number 52 is replaced with 53. It's confused me to do some amendments on 53, instead I did on 52. Adobe, please correct it.

Illustrator has a bug in artboards. When I create the 18th artboard, the program jumps and creates an artboard with the number 19. And when I create the 19th artboard the program displays two 19 artboards.
When creating artboards, doesn't matter if they are within a new file or existing, Illustrator skips 3, has two 5s, skips 7, has two 8s. Still happens when deleting/adding in the same file, or creating a new file.
same issue! Artboards 29 29 and 31 31.
While this issue is fixable through restarting a clearing preferences, it caused a great deal of trouble for me and is really frustrating. I had boards 9 and 12 duplicating, even when creating a new layout from scratch. When trying to export screens for a presentation it deleted (or overwrote, no way to tell) the duplicates, leaving with a project missing two slides. Very glitchy, very bad.
Hello, im currently having this exact same issue, it happens frequently, im a mac user. How did you solve it?
I also am seeing a duplicate artboard numbering.
If exported as png, using the numbers to specify the only artboards I need It def over-writes my artboard 43 with the one further down the list.
It cleared after my restart of Abobe Illustrator 2020 (24.0.1).

Please fix, so I do not have to close everything and restart the program. Thanks!
I'm missing 'artboard 7', but I was unable to export 'artboard 8' - so it seems to be an issue with numbering.
Same issue: two artboards#9, wont export correctly. Restart programm / machine didn't help. Created a new file - SAME ERROR!
I also am seeing this error. It is not a visual error for me as there is no Artboard 39 when I export. There are two Artboard 40's and no 39. I tried creating a brand new file and it does the same thing.
This went away for a little while, but it's back today. It won't export the duplicate numbers.
I’ve had this problem as well, usually with the same numbers
Also note, restarting Illustrator seems to have resolved the issue.
In multiple different files, 3rd created artboard is assigned the number 4 instead of 3.
I duplicated the same artboard 3 times, ending up with 4 artboards, and two of those artboards were assigned the same number (4). So I cannot export one of the artboards as they export to a single file name. I duplicated one of the artboards to get artboard number 5, then deleted one of the artboard number 4s and artboard number 5 became artboard number 4 resulting in the same problem.
