    Having the artboard names on export is great, but what would be even more useful is if the artboard number (see 'image_01.jpg') can be automatically added as a prefix on export.

    Therefore after export, from this example image, the exported artboard name would include '01_' before the artboard name. E.g '01_D_No-account_not-logged-in'.

    Advantages to this mean that if you have exported 30 artboards, all with unique artboard names they go in the order of artboard number, rather than alphabetically based on the artboard name itself.

    So for example, when I look in the folder where I have exported them to, they are in the order I intended when ordering the artboards by number, in Illustrator. Not all jumbled because of the first character in alphabetical naming protocol.

    Currently when I have exported a batch of artboards, I would have to go through each exported file and rename with the 'artboard number' at the beginning so that they are list in the correct order. This means when I present the images to someone, they are in the order I want them to be.

    You could argue that I number them at the time of naming the artboard, however the order of these gets rearranged frequently, and after a review, there may be more artboards added, so it is inconvenient to have to go through all the artboards proceeding the one I have renamed and change the numbers when the numbering is already there as the artboard number.
