Change artboard X and Y origins in Illustrator CS6

May 22, 2012 1:00 AM

Tags: #illustrator #cs6

Hey,

 

Is it possible to change the artboard origins to always be 0,0 (top left corner), and not relative to the first artboard in a document?

 

Cheers,

Petter

    Create your own document profile for this.

    You're probably using Global Rulers. Right-click on a ruler and choose "Change to Artboard Rulers".

    Petter,

     

    Probably completely irrelevant here, but it is also possible to change to the old way, bottom left corner.

    DayForce has the answer. if you have not changed the orientation then you only have to select thartboard you wish by clicking in it  or select art on it and the rulers change to orient themselves to the artboard.

     

    Notice as the artboards are selected the 0 position chages to reflect that selection

    Make sure you do not have Global Rulers checked
