Control what is sliced and exported?

Recommended Posts

I am  making a graphic with many boxes and lines and I tried to export the whole graphic as 1 jpg, but instead, I got 58 jpgs! One for each item on the art board.


Also, trying to select all of those slices and I can't easily mass-select them using shift key or shift + arrow.


So...How do I say, "Take ALL of these items and make 1 slice out of them...all together.



thank you!

it certainly can!


I have not been able to re-produce what I saw earlier, which is basically, that I selected the object in the art board..the whole thing at the parent level..in the export personas area, made a slice, exported slice and wound up with 58 separate jpgs; one jpg for each of the 58 objects — lines, boxes, type - in the document.  screengrab shows the layers expanded, but in my attempt to reproduce, it didn't make any difference layers open or layers closed; I just couldn't get it to happen again.


Thank you

My guess is you selected all the objects and clicked the create slice button on the context toolbar or the layers tab. This will create a slice for all objects in your selection. 


As I think you already know you can just drag a new slice rect using the slice tool or select just the parent layer or object and create a slice.


If you have any other issues then just get back to me.
