Checkerboard background pattern

Apr 8, 2013 3:24 PM

Why is there a checkboard background pattern when opening/importing an Illustrator or .pdf doc into Elements?  How does one get rid of it?  Thanks.

    The checkerboard is just a way for you to be able to tell a transparent area. It doesn't print. Without something like that you wouldn't be able to tell a solid white area from an empty area.
