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.

Thanks.

Yeah this should totally be a thing!

Maybe it would be nice to be able to make exports for seperate Artboards without even making slices for them so you could move them around and resize without having to rebuild the slice?

Needed the same function last week for a calendar project. At the end I had to export 13 times by clicking the next artboard in the export dialog. Waste of time :/

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.
