There may be times when you need to take artwork that you created inside of Illustrator and export it for use inside of applications like Excel, PowerPoint or Word. There is a real quick and easy way to do that directly from Illustrator. And you'll find that here inside the File menu. I am going to choose File > Save for Microsoft Office. This automatically saves your file as a PNG file or a PNG file, which is a raster-based image. Illustrate automatically optimizes it for what's best for Microsoft Office. And it's basically a one-click solution.
Of course, if you want to control the settings within a PNG file, there are other ways to save PNGs out of Illustrator, either through the Save for Web dialog box or directly through the Export menu. However, this is a really quick and easy way to export graphics for Microsoft Office. One thing to note about this feature is that it doesn't recognize artboards, meaning if I have a single Artboard inside of my file, that entire file gets exported. However, like in this case here, if I have five different artboards, all those five artboards get exported as one a large PNG file.
