Artboards name disappear after renaming
After renaming an artboard in the panel, it will return to it's default name eg. , Artboard [x], instead of maintaining the new name.
AI version: 22.0.1
I am closing the ticket due to lack of response.

Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

Why was this ticket closed? This is still an issue in Ai CC 2020. Names appear fine in the artboard panel then I save for screens and the names are reverted to a previous name. Back to artboard panel and they are the new names. Totally inconsistent. save close, reopen, artboard names are reverted! Typing them in a second time seems to make them stick. Super annoying to repeat my work.
Yes, this problem exist. After renaming artboard, saving, closing document and then opening it, artboard again named Artboard [x], and number after word "Artboard" increments by 1 after every saving-closin-opening procedure.

Same problem, and even if the artboard have the right name, the PNG export have the wrong name. Annoying as H...
This is happening to me as well, it's been happening for a while actually. v24.2.3 on macOS Catalina 10.15.6.
It's very annoying.
August 2020, Illustrator 24.2.1 and is still happening.
Hello, this problems is continuously happening to me. I have a lot of artboard (900+) and some times I need to rename a few consecutive. Every time but without a clear pattern, the first one edited come back to its previous name. Sometimes in a few seconds after the last edit, sometimes a few hours later. It happens both on Windows and MacOS.

I have been having this problem repeatedly. I cannot understand the rhyme or reason for this issue. Even saving the working file. I have tried to carefully track why this would be happening but I cannot and it is disastrous for my workflow.
Yes, same problem i also

Yes, same problem, also... In the new version of Illustrator - CC 22.1 the ARTBOARD NAMES do not save at all. To reproduce open a new illustrator document, set up 10 artboards, NAME THEM, save the document, close it, re-open the document, the names are GONE. Also, when opening illustrator files that PREVIOUSLY had artboard names, all names are gone. They have been replaced with generic artboard names. To fix the issue switch back to a previous version of illustrator, ie: 20 or below, and the artboard names are back and they stay.
same problem here, i used the prerelease (22.0.1) and it worked, i use the final version now. still worked for me, but not in a undocked project window.
and when i change the namen and dont press enter and click with doubleclick again in a new artboards name sometimes it does not change the name. really strange :/
