Illustrator CS4 Artboards

The new Artboard features in Illustrator CS4 have been long awaited by some, but there is plenty here to assist every Illustrator user. New options include the ability to create a document with up to 100 separate artboards. They can be of differing size and orientation. Each artboard can be exported to its own file. Also, the new artboard tool has more options for organizing your workspace in Illustrator CS4.

    Sheryl,

    Thanks for this great tutorials and easy to follow. Please keep up the great works and looking forward for more of your tutorials in the future.

    I really that the videos are downloadable because the screen that display on this website is very small. Please consider that option for the future.

    Thanks,

    Is there any way to change the number/order of the pages before exporting to a pdf?

    >Is there any way to change the number/order of the pages before exporting to a pdf?

    No, there is not (perhaps this would make a good feature request for CS5 🙂 ). The artboards are not technically “pages.” You can, however, rearrange pages in Acrobat after you’ve created the PDF.

    Hello,
    I am new new new to this world of adobe. I have been playing and designing web headers and some logos in photoshop 7.0 and cs-2. I have now just gotten the c-s4 suite. I have no clue even how to start. Can you recomend the best place to start with an on-line learning school for someone who reallys knows nothing about the whole thing? I learn fast, but need to start with basic and I mean really the basics.
    I would appreciate your help so much and I thank you for your time.
    Sincerely,
    Val

    With the CS4 crop tool you could mark out an area and then use the ‘save for web’ tool for image optimisation, etc. How do we do that now Export provides no options for optimising jpgs, or setting transparency.

  • Rita says:

    Hi Cheryl, We just acquired CS4 and I love the artboards. Can I change the numbered order of them somehow? It seems to save them in the order I created and added them.
    Thanks,
    Rita

    A great site for some of my graphic staff.

  • dag. says:

    The artboards feature is really giving me headaches. I was used to export all my jpegs via the “Save for web…” function where you have a visual preview of the exported file, in CS3 it always opened only the crop marked area in that window, now with the artboards implemented the function opens the whole document space which basically renders it useless.

  • Nate says:

    Dag – In “save for web” window, go to the “image size” tab and check “clip to artboard”

  • RaphaelDDL says:

    Very well explained. I had questions in how create new artboards inside a already open document and you showed how simple it was.

    Thank you very much

  • elwoode says:

    poor tutorial, “you can just click this button here..” we can’t see what button you click on!
    and why have I never seen a tutorial (and I’ve seen a LOT) where the instructor has bothered to change their cursor to a , for example RED one so it is easier to follow around the screen ?
