I've got a large set of icons as symbols.  Is there any easy way to just export all the symbols either as individual files or as a sprite sheet?

    Hi Niblettes,

     

    Are your symbols already placed inside of a document, or do you just have them in a Symbol Library?

     

    One easy way to save them individually is by using the Slice tool. Place all of your icons in a document set for Web and then, using the slice tool, you can create boxes around each individual icon.

    You can export each one by choosing File > Save Selected Slices or you can export them all in one by choosing File > Save for Web and then selecting all of the slices in the dialog box.

     

    Does this help you?

    niblettes, did you try the script?

    can you describe exactly what you need?

    what's a "sprite sheet"?
