  • Illustrator 'Preview' view mode?

    Does Illustrator have a 'preview' mode similar to InDesign? I want to view the graphics only in the art board and don't want to see the elements hanging outside of it. I could mask everything in a rectangle but figured Adobe would have a built in preview mode. Do they?

    Thanks!

      I'm no saying this is perfect, but you could build a layer with a large white box, then knock out the "artboard" size from that box and put that layer on the top of everything else.

      I actually do that on a few projects from time to time. It doesn't take that long. Sure it's a few extra steps, but it's still pretty quick to do.

        Yeah, I've done the Mask Layer type approach to view "in-house" and sometimes in the past have thrown white rectangles around the edge....silly i know but in a rush....

          I don't know anything about your work, so maybe the following is relevant, and maybe it isn't.

          There are places that care more about quantity and speed than about exceptional quality. There...

          After reading your post I think that maybe I should continue Graphic Design as a hobby or entirely switch careers altogether. I don't think I can deal with the stress when a manager hovers over me and...
