Im trying to make a web wireframe in Illustrator CS6. From a tutorial I watched I started to make slices for different components on my web page by going object>slice>make. However when ever I saved it and opened the file up again the slices were gone. Also, I tried to save selected slices by going to file>save selected slices and also file>save for web but neither of these methods worked and the save slices never showed. I am new to illustrator and web design.
I tried using the option of going file> save selected slices and then the save dialogue box appears and I choose my destination for desktop but it never appears :/ I think I've tried searching for the file a couple of times on my mac but I still coudn't find it. I also tried to go file >save for web and tick the option of exporting selected slices as I only want to export one slice the about me button. This shows in the destination I choose however it doesnt export the selected slice, just one of the sections around the slice
Here is the save for web dialogue box and I want to just export the small about me text slice which is highlighted by the gold boarder.
And this is the slice I am getting
Select the gold border object, convert to slice by going to Object menu > Slice > Make. This would create slice for the selected object, now use Slice selection tool (hidden inside the slice tool) to select the slice then do "Save Selected Slices"
Ahh yes I missed out the part of going object > slice > create from selection. I noticed in the save dialogue box it only gives the option of images only. What would I use if I were exporting text?
Do you mean exporting to HTML? directly exporting to HTML is not supported from CS6 onwards, however you can do a preview in browser and then get to the HTML by "View Source" in browser.
Can you explain your workflow, how you will use the exported text?
