    Extract Assets with transparent spacing?

    l3media Level 1

      The extract assets feature has grown on me, but I'm struggling to find a way to export graphics with transparent spacing.

       

      For instance, I have a graphic that needs to be a 100x100px PNG but the actual artwork only takes up 80x80px with the rest of the transparent pixels acting as spacing. The extract asset setting automatically crops the PNG to 80x80 when saving, ignoring the transparent space that I do actually need.

       

      Been struggling with finding a way to set transparency to export, seems like I'm missing something simple. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

          Ran into the same issue myself earlier today.  Here's a fix/workaround/solution that seems to give the ability to add transparent spacing around slices. 

           

          If you select the layer you want to add the spacing to, then draw a marquee selection around it at the final size you want then click "Add Layer Mask" it should export the asset at the size of you selection. 

           

          Hope this helps.
