A reader asked how he could trim off the objects outside his artboard. There is no Crop tool in Adobe Illustrator, but there are a few ways to remove or hide excess shapes that overlap the edges of the artboard – if you want to.

Vector illustration used in this screencast is available from GraphicRiver.
