How to create crop mars to save a document

Hi, I recently u[graded from a very old Illustrator version to CS6 and I noticed the crop tool is missing. It used to be really easy in the old version to drag the crop tool around the area in question and crop marks would be generated automatically. Then I could save and print just that area only. Now this tool is gone and I am having trouble with finding a way to define the area I want to save or print. When i generate crop marks and then save, all i get is a file with plenty of white around it that also shows the crop marks.... please help!!!

    The crop has been intregrated into the artboards. Click on the art board tool then in the top tool bar, you can select the properties icon. In there, you can crop the artboard to the artwork and turn on print and video marks.
