Pro 2020 Export Resolution

What happened to the ability to increase the export resolution (see screenshot)? My 2D image exports are pretty pixelated, and I can’t boost the resolution at all.

Suggestions? Thoughts?!


Except for the addition of the Line Scale multiplier, image export settings are as they’ve always been. You can change the image size to whatever you want. There’s never been a setting for resolution, though.

LayOut does have that option, though.

Simply increase the size of the image by increasing pixel count values for height and width


That’s good Julian but it doesn’t do anything to change the resolution that you can’t do with the native image export feature.

If you need to work with another application that requires the DPI to change, you can set the size to something huge, then use an image editor (Photoshop or Gimp for example) to change the DPI without resampling the size.

The export DPI is 72, so if you want to print something at 300 DPI to fill A3 paper in landscape, set the export to be 4959x3507, then in Photoshop change it from 72 to 300 DPI.

You may not even need antialiasing if you do it that way.

For the harder case of exporting to a PNG that you intend to zoom into a lot, export at 9999 (the highest value). The DPI won’t matter, but antialiasing will help a little.

If everything is vector you can export to PDF, then zoom in as much as you like.

And the resolution setting even gets written into the exported file (tried only PNG, though) so that it is recognized by, for instance, Photoshop.
