Adobe. Make It an Experience.Mick commented
Just tested and can confirm this is STILL broken in v23.
Please just add a checkbox and give users a choice. This workflow as it currently stands is extremely impractical.Mick supported this idea ·Mick commented
This is still very broken.
I'm on Ai v22.1 on Windows 10. When I Export for Screens my expected workflow is that the export to: folder would be the last folder I exported to in that file, same with the prefix.
Instead what is happening is the prefix and folder is persisting regardless what file I am in. This is very sloppy & not intuitive at all.
The old export system was fantastic and yet now I feel like I'm constantly changing folders and prefixes for simple exports. Why not at least have a setting for power users to enable this again?!
In its current form it is infuriating.
