    I'd double check the creative commons stuff, just to cover your butt. Actually, I'd double check it all.

  • 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?

    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....
