[By Design] Exporting an artboard with a slash in the name (/) results in folder creation

Recommended Posts

If I create an artboard with a slash in its name (“8 1/2 x 11 Artboard” for example), then when I export that slice in the Export persona, anything before the slash becomes a new folder (“8 1”) and anything after becomes part of the file name (“2 x 11 Artboard.pdf” for example).

It seems like your developers are not ‘escaping’ the slash when submitting the file name to the file system.

For now, I’ve resorted to going decimal (“8.5 x 11 Artboard”) and that works fine. :)

Alternatively, you might be able to escape the slash yourself: 8 1\/2 x 11 Artboard

Even simpler: “US Letter Artboard” ;)

Update: This is by design. On Desktop, you can use the "path" option to create folders and subfolders using forward slash. On iOS, you don't have the Path option, but this is build it into the "export" process and any forward slash will result in a folder.
