Action batch saving with data sets does not put out multiple files
I updated to version 25.4 and had a file with multiple data sets. I have an action that saves as a PDF and I wanted to "batch" this action as I have done multiple times in the past to create multiple PDFs.
However, now only one file gets saved and it gets overwritten constantly when the action repeats. The saved file name is whatever the file was saved as when recording the action, so it is not even the data set name.
I have now reverted to the oldest version I could find which was 24.3 and it is working in this version.
Someone else has experienced this issue as well. Their solution was to update but I am using the newest version available to me and I am still experiencing it. https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/data-set-not-saving-out-multiple-pdf-files/m-p/12212808

May 2023 - I am having the same problem. Batch action to create pdfs of all data sets results in a one-page pdf with the last set of data. Using version 27.5.
