I'm with Illustrator 23.1.

Every time I do an export, I see the list of previous assets, such as:

enter image description here

If I export the same image, it messes with the name (because prev assets is already there), such as X_1, X_2, and so on.

Is it possible to erase all Assets in that windows? I don't need prev ones. Not sure how to to this.

You can easily delete all or selected assets in "Asset export" window. In Illustrator: Window -> Asset export, then choose unwanted assets and press trashcan icon. Voila!

  • Why they can't be deleted on Export Selection windows? It doesn't make sense hehe

    Eh, don't ask me why... Adobe products seem to degrade from version to version, unfortunately. Hope somebody will dethrone them eventually.

  • Thanks for the answer. An additional tip I found using AI 2022. The Asset Export window doesn't populate until you start an export.
