Hi, its really annoying that I cant change the output settings when I save for web something. I just want to tell Illustrator that I dont want to create a new images folder everytime I save something, and I dont want to add a _N at the end of the file name...
Is there a way to change this?, I couldnt find it.
This feature has been removed from CS6:
As quoted from this Adobe employee blog post on the new CS6 Save for Web feature:
The Output Settings dialog box, used to control HTML file formatting, slice naming, and background image handling, has been removed.
I haven't had any luck figuring out a work-around, but I'll keep poking around.
Yeah, I would like to know why there is no way to edit these settings either. As a web designer that hand codes everything, it is horribly, horribly inefficient to have to change filenames and folders constantly.
I thought Adobe was all about the design industry..... Thanks a lot.
Demo version is full version with a time limit.
Since there are no signs of interest for this topic by Adobe, I am going to start working with Sketch 2 :
Of course it doesn't have all the features of Illustrator, but Sketch seems to have very handy tool for slicing and some other well thought tools for web or app design.
Think I found a solution (on Mac).
Go to to "Macintosh HD > Applications > Adobe Illustrator CS6 > Adobe Illustrator CS6": right-click and "show package contents".
then browse to "Required > Resources > en_GB > SaveforWebStrings.txt"
open the file in a text-editor (BBedit Textmate,… make a back-up first)
and change line 606:
restart illustrator, and voila!
now if I only could find where we can disable the slicenumbers…
Nope didn't work for me but thanks for sharing.
I am using a french localized version of Illustrator, so 'SaveforWebStrings.txt' is in a fr_FR directory but I don't think it matters.
No luck for slices numbers either. Probably nothing in this file for getting rid of them.
Funnny, some of the strings in this file refers to Image Ready or Photoshop CS3... Says a lot about how Adobe updates its apps.
Apparently I don't export html from illustrator enough to realize the html option is missing.
However I found out that illustrator still does export html (tested in CC did not try CS6 yet)
Use save for web, but instead of saving anything, click on the preview button. In your browser view the source code. You will find that html was indeed created for that temp view. The only catch I see though is the html code is generated twice. It firsts shows the normal div tags with the slices, it then lists a pre tag and code tag following the same html code wrapped with < and >.
OK, Guess I did not look at it good enough. No need to open the source view in the browser. Scroll the browser window down and the html is printed in the document it self. Which explains the duplicate code in the source editor.
Should have known, jeesh.
And BTW, it works in CS6 as well.
