Quickly Export Assets in Illustrator

In this tutorial, we’re going to learn how to quickly export multiple assets in Adobe Illustrator.

The Steps (1-7)

1. Open your design file in Illustrator.

2. Go to Window > Asset Export, and the Asset Export Panel will appear. From here you can Drag each individual element within your design into the space at the top of this panel to add it to the list of assets to be exported. Grouped objects within Illustrator will be added as a single asset.

3. Double-clicking on an asset name, eg. ‘Asset 1’, will allow the asset to be renamed. The asset name will also make up part of the filename after being exported.

4. Go to File > Export > Export for Screens, and select the Assets tab. You can also select the icon at the bottom of the Asset Export Panel to display the same window that contains more options.
