please don't tell me to search. I can't figure out what I need to ask yet.
how can you make the artboards line up to the grid? each of my boards is not quite set the same on the grid so trying to place items in the same position from one board to the next is hard.
i have a few art boards. each is 4x6 inches. the distance from the right edge of one to the left edge of the next board is odd and it causes the art board to start in an odd place in the grid. I will try to show in ansi style here.
| and - is a grid line, * is an artboard edge
I made the grid as straight as I could.
as you see the edge of the first artboard ends on a grid line ( 1" grid, 8 subdivisions ) as it should since I am using a 6" wide artboard, it should end on a grid line. The next artboard starts in a spot that is not a grid line like the first one did. so the grid is off on the second art board.
If you have a bleed set for artboards, that gets factored into the rearranging. That can cause artboads to fall off the grid.
A) set any bleed to 0 or an evenly divisible number for your grid and then rearrange artboards
B) Set the rulers to Artboard Rulers (View menu > Rulers) then simply double click the ruler origin to realign the grid when you switch artboards.
