  • 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....

          Select the first rectangle, go to Object>Path>offset path. For an inside border use a negative number. Outside is positive number.
          If you want to fill the frame, select both objects and make...

          I think if you shift/drag it bigger, it will make it a square. I would duplicate the rectangle and increase the size by a percentage, then align to the original.

          If I have a rectangle, and I want a border around it (not a stroke) that is perfectly aligned (same...
