Forward slash in artboard name creates a directory on slice export

Recommended Posts

Naming an artboard any name containing a forward slash in Designer 1.8.5 on Windows 10 will create a new folder due to path concatenation. I'm unsure whether this is expected behaviour (in terms of organisation of different parts of a project) or an actual bug. I've attached screenshots showing the setup to reproduce this and the results, but effectively an artboard or slice named "a/b" will export to "$EXPORTFOLDER/a/b.png", instead of either substituting the seperator for another symbol or removing it.

Hi knxggles,

This is a by product of intended behaviour. Adding a foward slash to a slice name will allow you to create series of paths that the file gets exported to as I believe you're aware. When you create a slice from an object it will use it's name for the slice name, so unfortunately if it does contain a forward slash, that will get carried forwards.

Hi Sean,

Thanks a lot for clarifying! I wasn't sure whether this was intended behaviour or not and couldn't find any documentation of this so I assumed it was a bug. My apologies!
