    Hi @Christo, there are a substantial number of requests for this on other threads. Many people are frustrated with this!

    I would have more respect for Adobe in this and other long-awaited features if they came out and said that unfortunately the underlying architecture of illustrator is so old and creaky that some features are impossible to add without completely rewriting the codebase, which would risk breaking many trusted features and third-party plugins and potentially take years to implement.

    My suspicion is that Adobe’s intention is to grow the iOS apps to a point where they can be ported to desktop and completely replace the aging desktop apps.

    Yes, it looks like Adobe have gone part way to addressing our needs but have made it worse in the process. The latest version (24.2.1) sets the path to the source file’s location regardless of whether a different path was set previously. I encountered this yesterday, rushing to output edits to assets and expecting them to overwrite the earlier output but finding instead that I had to re-set the export path.

    Three groups of people need to be accommodated: those (like me) who want the path to be saved in the file so that each file remembers its own specific export location; those (like Lucas Bianchetti, below) who want every export to be directed to one specific location; and perhaps also a few people who always want their output to be in the same location as the source file.

    The last of these is probably the smallest constituency, yet this is the solution given us in the latest version.

    Thanks Varun, that’s very good news. These are nuisances I encounter daily.

    What I want is confidence that when I open a file and export assets, the export location will the the same folder as the last time I exported from that file, regardless of how many other exports I’ve done in the meantime from other files to other locations.

    Additional:

    - the export dialog should display the full path without having to tab into the field
    - the export format settings should be saved with the file, not as a global setting
    - the optional prefix should be specific to the file and saved with it
    - the list of assets should show filenames in full when the window is expanded

    There are feature request on all these going back to 2018 at least.

    In fact it turns out I posted about the problem with filename length back in 2017

    It would also be good to get some attention on the long-standing request regarding export presets:

    I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 24.1.2 which is available worldwide now.

    Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

    You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

    Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

    I’m working on a set of illustrations for 1080p screen size. So I open a 1080p template, and duplicate the artboard, once, twice, three times, four t… ah, it’s hit the canvas limit.

    Yes of course I can rearrange the artboards within the canvas limits, but it’s a nuisance, and even if I start the first artboard at the left edge of the canvas it will only allow eight artboards horizontally.

    I'm working in pixels.

    @Keith, I've just done your experiment with the following results:

    Illustrator document
    - FileSizeTest-1in.ai: 1,133,720 bytes (1.1 MB on disk)
    - FileSizeTest-220in.ai: 1,134,304 bytes (1.1 MB on disk)

    Illustrator EPS with embedded 8-bit TIFF preview
    - FileSizeTest-1in.eps: 951,233 bytes (958 KB on disk)
    - FileSizeTest-220in.eps: 8,819,797 bytes (9.5 MB on disk)

    Illustrator EPS without embedded preview
    - FileSizeTest-1in-nopreview.eps: 938,945 bytes (946 KB on disk)
    - FileSizeTest-220in-nopreview.eps: 939,066 bytes (946 KB on disk)

    PDF with Illustrator default settings
    - FileSizeTest-1in.pdf: 78,567 bytes (82 KB on disk)
    - FileSizeTest-220in.pdf: 78,700 bytes (82 KB on disk)

    So the only options where there is any material difference in file size is with EPS with embedded preview.

    I haven't tested a file with a placed and embedded raster image, but in any case when we create graphics in any software we generally need to be aware of file sizes, so Illustrator is no different in this respect.

    I therefore propose that the file-size argument is a side issue and has no bearing on the matter of canvas size.

    I honestly hit this problem at least once a week. Today I'm making a range of logos which are set to 2400px wide, so I've got three artboards in a row and want to duplicate one, but I can't because it suddenly hits the canvas limit, so I have to fiddle around rearranging my artboards on the canvas. It's nothing to do with file size, this is just a little bit of vector.

    I think it's fairly typical of Adobe to concentrate on new apps and adding more new features — which are then launched at flashy promotion events — than to do the unglamorous grind of refining the actual things we use in everyday work. I mean, I do like the new apps and features, but I wish they'd skip a year and focus instead on smoothing all these bumps which add friction in daily use.

    @Jason it's still flagged with Need More Info, despite there being plenty of info here.

    Regarding the suggestion to have some sort of automatic scaling factor, it would have to be transparent to the user. But my work is largely measured in pixels, which is a dimensionless unit anyway, and I still run into the canvas limit. An infinite canvas would be ideal.

    Working on layouts for 1080p video, I create a document 1920x1080px and duplicate the artboard once, twice, three times, but the fourth crashes the canvas limit. Rearranging the artboards into columns is just a few clicks but the new arrangement pays no attention to the grid, so I have to realign the boards. Of course I have made templates to save me the hassle, but the canvas limit still hits me often enough to be frustrating.

    Yes, I'd want to retain the prefix field but with the additional option to prefix with the filename.

    But really it would be more useful to overhaul it entirely and have a single field which accepted tokens for the various elements to be included in the output filename. This would also allow for underscores, dashes, spaces or some other preferred delimiter.

    Fullscreen works properly with XD, so someone at Adobe knows how to code it.

    It's the same with Photoshop and InDesign, and I find it a real nuisance.

    Could it be scripted somehow? (I'm not familiar with scripting in Illustrator.) Saving presets would be best, like with print settings.

    This export feature seems unchanged in v23, certainly there's no sign of a way to save export options with the file or to an external file (please correct me if I'm wrong).

    This is a regular painful issue. I get around it by taking screenshots the export panel so I know what options to re-enter next time I come back to that job. Which is pretty lame.

    It's great to see new features being added, but it's the less glamorous issues like this which have an impact on everyday workflow. And it's doubly galling that Export for Screens was a shiny new feature which now seems to be abandoned, and that makes it harder to commit to relying on other new features.

    I would urge anyone who upvoted this thread to do so on these other threads:

    https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-feature-requests/suggestions/32015539-custom-presets-for-asset-export

    There are other issues with this feature, such as only the first 24 characters of object and file names being visible, and the export path being global rather than saved with the file. I'd be happy to spend a day with Adobe to thrash through these problems and give whatever help I can to get this feature up to scratch, because it's a royal pain in the butt the way it is now.

    I'm hitting this again today, and it's a real nuisance! I have to keep written notes of the export settings for each job and reset them each time.

    Being able to save and import custom settings would be a major help. It would also help to have the settings saved within each file.

    This would be very useful! Working on multiple projects it is a nuisance that the export formats are a global setting. For example, one project needs transparent .png at one output size, but another project needs opaque .png at a different output size. If the preference was saved with the file it would help, and it would also help to have custom sets as suggested.
