CS6 artboard - cant resize from center

In CS5, if you hold the ALT key (on windows, not mac) while resizing the artboard, it will scale from the center... creating an even width reduction/increase on either side of the page. Why was this behavior removed in CS6?

    Nope, just tried it. Holding Alt makes no difference. I wish it did.

    CS5 Windows 7

    Doesn't work on a Mac in any version. Wish it did though.

    as a workaround one could draw a rectangle the size of the artboard, resize it from the center, turn it into an artboard, then delete the original artboard.




    long time ago (a little over a year ago) I wrote a script for CS4 that resized the artboard to fit the Art in went obsolete with CS5. I think we could do it in CS4 also but the command could not be recorded in an Action...something like that, I don't remember. It could be used for this request....


    is anyone interested?

    ...should I post it here? or I could also start a new thread with the usual "Introducing..." or "Re...Introducing..."

    I'd love a script if possible, Carlos.


    Would suggest a new thread so everyone sees it.
