Exported files differ in size to artboards

Recommended Posts

Whenever I export regardless if just individual artboards or using the export persona my exported files are usually bigger by a pixel. if I'm exporting a 1024x1024 asset then it's usually 1025 x 1025. Sometimes it's only ONE axis that is larger. 

We use Designer for game asset creation and exported file sizes are vital.

You need to make sure your Artboards and objects are located at integer coordinates on the pixel grid, and have integer pixel sizes.

You may need to go to Preferences and increase the number of decimal places that Designer displays for pixel units to make sure you can see any decimal places.

You'll probably also want to make sure you have Snapping enabled, and Snap to grid enabled, and also Move by Whole Pixels turned off.
