Illustrator in 60 Seconds: The Artboards Panel
Ever wondered how you can display and edit all your project's assets in the same document? Well if that's the case, go through this little video which will show you how you can better manage your workflow using only one ai. file, and the Artboards panel.
How to Use Adobe Illustrator's Artboard Panel
To create a new Artboard, open up the panel and then click on the New Artboard icon.
We can Rename each artboard by simply Double-clicking on a default allocated name and then giving it a new one.
If we need to remove one of the artboards, we'll simply select it from the panel and then click on the Delete Artboard icon which will remove the canvas, but not the assets themselves.
There are a couple of other things that you can adjust such as the Width, Height, Orientation, and Position of the artboards by clicking on the Artboard icon which will bring up a window where you can make your adjustments.
