Need "Create Slices from Artboards" Button

Recommended Posts

Hi. I have created web design layout like 20+ pages (artboard).

Most artboard is created by duplicating previously created artboard.


When it's time for exporting using export-persona, but I am really disappointed that Affinity Designer didn't create slices from my artboards (the only slices created are my first 5 artboards that I created using "Insert Artboard" button.

Now, what I really need is a simple button like "Create Slices from Artboards" that will generate slices from existing unsliced artboards, with artboard names as the slice names.

You can already create a slice from any object (including Artboards).





  • In Export Persona, make sure you can see the Layers Panel.
  • Click to select all the objects (Artboards) that you want as Slices.
  • Click Create Slice.
  • Affinity makes a Slice for each object, inheriting the name from the source.


And these slices already resize and move with the respective Artboards!

Ohhh ... I must have missed the patchnotes, didn't know there is a layers panel now in export persona. I was used to AD automatically slicing all my artboards the moment I go to export persona, so I was wonderiing why it was broke when it didn't make my slices.
