[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” ;)
