    Exporting Only Selected Slices

    lloydtennison
      Is there a way to export slices and NOT have the ones I have deselected in layers to export without doing it one but one? I have not been able to find any combination or way to do it save deleting the slices instead of deselecting them.

          Yes, I've just done it.

          Name your slices, Slice1,slice2 etc.
          Select the slices you want to export holding down the shift key.
          When you have them all selected, right click on one of them and choose
          'Export Selected Slice' from the menu.
          In the Export menu I left the File name: Untitled-1.jpg as it was.
          Export: Images Only.
          HTML should be greyed out.
          Slices: Export Slices.
          And a check in the Selected Slices only box.

          That worked for me.

            No, I want the HTML, but only what I have selected. It still will export everything. If I delete the slice, it works fine. Deselecting it is ignored, either by clicking on it or by deselecting it in layers.

              Oh, in that case why not save a copy, then delete the slices you don't want
              the html for, export and then undo?

                That is what I have been doing, but I was hoping I was missing something, as that is the long way around. Deselected should mean exactly that. It should not try and "second guess" what someone is doing.

                It is just strange that everywhere else it pays attention to whether or not something is selected before doing an action.
