artboards size to slice, slice yellow triangle

Recommended Posts

Artboards & slices

1. How do I dupicate a group of artboards. Each row is a group.

2. My 550 x550 artboards layer slices are 551 x551 or 550x551 so I have to redo each slice to 550x550. Any way to make artboards that will convert to 550x550 slices?

3. Riley slice info show a yellow triangle in 3rd screenshot. It's the only bad yellow indicator. What is this and how do I correct.

Compliment: I haven't make a new watercolor url page because it was such a pain to create new same size art. With AD I drag files into 550x500 artboard, duplicate artboards and export slices. This is wonderful!!!!

Position (X, Y) and Size (W, H) is whole pixels?

Simply select the group then either right-click the group in the Layers Studio and select Duplicate (or you can use the keyboard shortcut CTRL/CMD + J)

This indicates - as Psenda has mentioned above - that your artboards aren't currently placed on 'whole pixels' in your document. Select any of your artboards then navigate to the Transform Studio in the bottom right of the app. Here you will see X & Y values for the artboard, likely these will not be whole values. Please delete any decimals from the X & Y values and then recreate your slices - you should now find your slices to be the correct size :)

The yellow triangle should explain the issue if you hover your mouse over it, as Psenda has mentioned :)

I hope this helps - I'm glad to hear you're enjoying using Affinity!

This is because you have two artboards with the same name, so they will be exported to the same output file, and will overwrite each other.

How to fix it? Rename one of the artboards :-)

Selecting artboards within group then Command dragging  worked. Selecting and dragging top level Group did not.

Don't understand your comment. Clarification please. Artboard is 550 x 550 and slice 551 x 550. Artboard vs slice size discrepancy is an on going problem.

I copied artboard from above. Deleted % pixels from all artboards. But I had already set all slices to 550 except the last row where I copied Huskie from Hansel.

Huskie is still 551. How do I recreate Huskie slice?

Thank you for you patience. Slice ability like this is a game changer for me : )

How do I tidy up multiple artboard so all are neatly distributed? I have snap on.

Once again artboard export yellow triangle issue. I have 2 with the same photo. 1 ok and 1 not. Both shown have a yellow triangle. I made sure all sizes are whole pixels. Didn't help. What to do please?

Tip: If you hover the pointer over the yellow triangle it will pop up an explanation of what the issue is. :)

You mean tooltip "Filename has been duplicated. The filename will be made unique for export."?

As I wrote several times before - rename one of the artboards to make their names unique.
