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.
I dont have that option in Illustrator CS6, after "Unlink All Slices" the popup menu ends, Im using Windows, I see you have the Mac version, could be because of that?
@ken let me know if you find a way to do it.. this is terribly annoying... I use Save for web all the time
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.
Yep... I am bored too with that... Totally breaks my workflow. We don't need that crappy images folder. Don't need slice's number in files name too.
(Guys the table design died so many years ago...)
True, they messed CS6 up for me , added alot of features but why take such a useful option ?! another MicroBrain ? (hope not )
Hi there, did you have any luck with this? I have just installed the demo and I use Save for Web function all the time too. Is it on the CS6 full programme also?
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.
This situation is very sad.
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.
Adobe is crazy.
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 >.
For now thats the only way, I know of that will allow you to use area maps and urls.
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.
OMG this is so annoying! I do not want dashes added automatically to my save for web filenames!!! Not only that but it suddenly switched to the "unix filename" output format with NO WARNING. It used to do this in the past randomly but at least I could use this dialog box to fix it. now it's adding dashes to all my filenames and I can't do anything about it? WHAT THE LIVING HELL!?!!
