changing text across multiple artboards and managing boards

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Loving AD. Couple of q's.

 

1 - Is there any method to change a text phrase across multiple artboards in AD? There are 100+ pages (boards), and I don't relish the idea of doing this manually.

 

2 - It would be so nice to have artboards listed in the same way layers are listed in the sidebar and showing only the board you're working on the dashboard. Is that possible? So far, I've only been able to add the boards either on top of each other or dragging side-by-side. The dashboard work area gets so crowded it's confusing and I'm constantly needing to zoom. There must be a better way as the way I'm doing it is cumbersome.

Thanks in advance!

If you double click the ArtBoard Layer it will fit it into the view space. The same will happen for objects on the artboards.

As far as I am aware there is no Replace text option in AD. if it is a sentence or word that is repeated you could convert it to a symbol and edit the symbol, that would reflect changes over as many Artboards as you want.

I tried double clicking the artboard but that doesn't work. :( In fact, it does nothing at all when I double click. I have version 1.6.1 Mac.

 

Thanks for the symbol suggestion. I will try that.

 

much appreciated.

Hi Graf, not the artboard itself, the artboard layer
