Exporting multiple artboards as a single document PDF

Recommended Posts

If you choose the ‘Whole document’ option when exporting to PDF, you’ll automatically get one artboard per page. The lowest artboard in the Layers panel will appear on the first page of the PDF, and the highest one will appear on the last page.

Are there any other ways? 

I have a few artboards that I do not want to use in the finished document. I know I can delete these but just wondering if this is the only way.

Try hiding the ones that you don’t want to include. I can’t check right now, but I think that should give you the desired result.

I can export multiple artboards to PDF in one operation, as Alfred says.

Is there a way of exporting the artboards as separate jpg pictures in one operation, similar to how Publisher does so for separate pages?

AD's export persona will do this.

To thomaso.

Thanks.

It's a feature I've not used before but I've just tried it and it seems to do what I need.

I'll check the Help file for more information.

Update:

If you intend exporting multiple artboards as separate pictures using the Export Persona and if the output format is the same for each (for example jpg, png, etc.), it's a idea to set the intended format in the 'Defaults' mode in the Export Persona's 'Export Options' panel before adding artboards to the drawing.

Thanks Mike.

I'm still finding my way around the Export Persona.

Incidentally, have you tried using the check-boxes in the Slices panel?
