Designer 1.6.4 doesn´t export multipage pdf

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I´ve installed version 1.6.4 today, and the usual steps to export a multipage pdf doesn't seem to work.

  1. Create a doc with multiple artboards
  2. Go to export persona
  3. Click export button of document slice (Slices tab)

The result is one page with all artboards.
Is there a workaround?

Cheers,
Pedro

I'm not sure how you're supposed to get what you want using the Export Persona.

But File->Export may give you a workaround. It seems to for me, at least.

Hi Walt,

Indeed, your solution works great and I feel a bit silly for not trying it sooner.

Thank you.

Cheers,
Pedro

For the record, I tested PDF export in designer 1.6.1.93 export person, as described above and worked as expected: a multipage PDF.
The same steps in designer 1.6.4 results in 1 page PDF with all the artboards in it.

It may seem one small detail, but for those, like me, who use export persona as part of the work flow, we loose some of that work.
Not much, I know, but it hints some lack of control on the updates.
With that said, still my number one app. :)

Cheers,
Pedro

Hi Pdro

 

This has been intentionally changed to be more consistent with how multiple artboards are export to other formats from the export persona. The export persona is more designed to export individual elements instead of full document which the File> Export dialog is much better suited to

 

Thanks

Thank you for the reply, Chris.

I gather that's a change that was included in the "Assorted PDF export improvements".

 

Cheers,

Pedro
