When using the "Repeat Last Export" function without a previous export having ever happened, it gives the message "Aseprite can't save "" files". Should be something more clear.

Aseprite and System version

  • Aseprite version: 1.1.7-dev
  • System: Arch Linux

Hi @blinry, it's strange. It should show the Export Sprite Sheet by default when no previous export was made. Do you get that message when you create a new sprite and use Repeat Last Export?

Yep! I tried with a clean profile (by moving the ~/.config/aseprite) – it works like you describe there. In my "dirty" profile, this is the sprite_sheet section of the aesprite.ini:

type = 1
columns = 2
width = 64
height = 32
texture_filename = **filename**

Any more information you could use?

I think I've the steps to reproduce this issue:

  1. Create a new sprite with Ctrl+N and Enter
  2. Then Ctrl+Shift+X to execute Repeat Last Export (this will open the export sprite sheet dialog)
  3. Click the Output file checkbox and press Export (the first sprite Sprite-0001-png.ini file is created with texture_filename = **filename**)
  4. Then we create a new sprite Ctrl+N and Enter
  5. We press Ctrl+Shift+X to export and the error appears

Thanks for your help! I'll try to fix this issue.
