  • Quickly create artboards with various sizes from list of measurements

    Posted by Nicole McLean on November 10, 2023 at 5:23 pm

    I have several projects that need 15-20 artboards in one file with multiple unique sizes. Right now, I create each artboard individually working of a long list of typed out measurements . Is there a script or something that would allow me to copy and paste in the measurements for each artboard and then have illustrator create them all at once? It would save me hours of work a week if I can find a way to do this.

    There is no way to create multiple artboards in illustrator with different sizes from the beginning. An option would be to create a different box shape with the size that you need. That way if you need 15 different artboards with different sizes you can create 15 boxes and then go to “object” menu / Artboards / fit to selected art.

    This way you’ll get a different artboard with the exact size of all the boxes that you created.

    If the same size is repeated over the documents this would be a good way to save time typing the measurements multiple times.
