Any tool to create artboards from text or excel file


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure I understand what you're looking for, @gr8rck. Can you provide more information on what you're trying to do?

Sure. I have anywhere between 10 - 30 artboards with layouts, per file.  I'm looking to be able to quickly create artboards inside of the file, along with naming them quickly.  That's the reason i was asking about artboards from csv or document file.  Just duplicating the artboards is a lot of work, especially when you have to name them and the number varies.  If you could toggle to the names of the artboards that would help, but still not ideal.

Thanks,
Ryan.

Thanks for the additional info, @gr8rck.

I'm not aware of any way to do that in the Affinity applications. Sorry.

I believe you also have Publisher... if so and you also have APhoto you can use a macro to create several additional Artboards, resize, rename them plus do a bunch of other stuff to them but I'm still not clear exactly what it is you want to do.

While that's mostly true, I don't see how the renaming part would work.

I'll have to figure that out.  I have looking to switch more to publisher for it's master page controls.  I'll check out the macros and see if that's a strong work-a-round.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Ryan.
