Photoshop cc 2015: missing the 1x/2x/3x options from extract assets

Hi,

Really digging the export functionality in Photoshop 2015, but one critical feature to our workflow is missing. The prior function, "extract assets", allowed for exporting 1x/2x/3x etc. versions of each asset. This enabled my development team to self serve everything they needed for mobile app work. Now they're going to likely have to hit me, the designer, up for all these different renditions.

Please consider adding this majorly useful feature back into export!

Hi Nat Tarbox,

We removed the Extract Assets feature from Photoshop CC 2015 because it received fairly low usage and bad feedback causing us to rethink how we wanted to present this workflow to our users. We are working to find a replacement that resonates better with how our customers want to do their work. Thank you for your feedback in letting us know that creating multi-resolution assets is important to you.

For now, you can continue to rename layers to get assets in different resolutions.

But the year after that you made tutorials that say this is still part of the program:

And again in 2017 you are still making new tutorials stating that it is still there:

Thanks for nothing and wasting hours of my time.

Hey Cos, Extract and Export are not the same thing. If you read the Help that you linked to, you'll see that you can access the 1x, 2x functions from within the Export As dialog...
