    Hi Everyone,

    We are pleased announce that in the latest beta build of Illustrator (v 26.4, which can be downloaded via Beta section of Creative Cloud Desktop app), we have fixed this. Request you to please download the build and give it a try. 


    Thanks.

    I agree that this is annoying and would be nice to have turned off, and there's a lot about their exporting that makes no sense, as is covered here, https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/39497440-using-a-character-other-than-underscore-for-append.

    As I mentioned in that request, if you don't name the artboard and export it it'll export it as File-01.jpg, but if you name the artboard then it'll be exported as File_artboard-name.jpg. I would understand if it used an underscore or hyphen in both cases, but it doesn't. It makes no sense that exporting it in the exact same way winds up with different characters following the name of the file. I want to see it changed to where you can choose the character you can use, or at least change it to where it's a hyphen/dash in both cases. The underscore isn't recognized as a non-word character, which is problematic in some instances, like search engine optimization. I need to replace all of the underscores with hyphens or dashes. It'd be even better if you can also choose for it to only export as the file name.

    Completely agree! It's strange because if you don't name the artboard and export it it'll export it as File-01.jpg, but if you name the artboard then it'll be exported as File_artboard-name.jpg. I would understand if it used underscores in both cases, but it doesn't. It makes no sense that exporting it in the exact same way winds up with different characters following the name of the file.

    As mentioned above, the underscore isn't recognized as a non-word character. In my case, I want it changed because hyphens separate the words when a web crawler scans a site and it's good for the SEO for crawlers to recognize that. Web crawlers can't read underscores.
