  • 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!

    Print to PDF and open in Acrobat.

      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 am wondering if there is a setting or plug-in in Indesign or acrobat in which I can automatically place/show the Pantones I used in my design. Right now I have to draw out boxes and label the Pantones...

          I think you'd do better to put a smily face in one of the circular letter forms, as that would at least emphasize commitment to 'nice'.

          If the logo is not what you had in mind, why do you show it here?
          If you are working with a crowdsource, let that be a lesson to you.

          I'd say there are three big issues that leap out to me.

          1. Navigating is really difficult - I just have to guess where to click and it takes me to a page, though I'm not often sure where...
