[By Design] AD export slices with paths problem

Recommended Posts

According to the tutorial video (link below) it should be possible to change the destination folder of a slice by editing its name. This can be seen at 5:30 in the video. I cannot get this to work.


The export persona and the "Slices" tab are open. When I change the name of a slice from "My Slice" to "path/My Slice" then AD writes "path_My Slice" as the new slice name. The other slices are not affected like shown in the video.


I also noticed that the "path" field is only relevant if I use "Export Slices". The Buttons "Click to export this size" and "Click to export all formats..." ignore the path setting. This seems to be counter intuitive to me.

Hi DanF


The paths in the file names are designed for exporting multiple slices at once which is what the Export Slices button at the bottom does. If you click the other export options you are only exporting that single slice or an element of that slice so we give you the ability to do a manual save. This is the intended behaviour
