Crosspost from the forums and a bit more detailed than the existing requests in here from 2017:
I do use the asset export feature a lot and as useful as it is, there is a major annoyance that comes with it:
Different projects have different requirements to their exported assets. One project might be for print (cmyk), one for web (rgb), one for both. One project might use PNG and SVG only, another project only needs JPG files. Every time I need to quickly export something, I either have to change the color mode of the file (CMYK/RGB) or delete and create new export resolutions, go into the export settings and tweak them to match the project. This is no time saver, unfortunately.
I would like to request a preset feature just like the PDF export settings window. This should be a combination of the all windows available in the asset export now.
In the "Export" panel you can still select the assets you want to export and below that you can only choose your preset from a dropdown list.
From the "Export" panel you can also choose the artboard tab now and select your artboard-export-presets from a dropdown list.
In the Export settings window you would have a left column where you can select "Resolutions" which opens a right side area where you would select what resolutions and filetypes you want to export just as you would do now. Below that in the left column there are all the filetyes with their respective settings as you do have now. Each resolutions has now another column called "Colormode" which lets you choose between CMYK and RGB (plus their color profile).
At the bottom of the settings window there are three buttons now: Cancel, OK, Save as preset ...
So whatever project you are working on, you can just choose the right preset for the job directly from the "Export" panel, select the assets which should be exported and go. Voilà, we turned the "Export Assets" function into a real time-saver ?Marschland Media & Arts supported this idea ·
