    Artboard Action/Script Crop to Artwork Bounds

      I have just finished manually cropping the artboard to fit the artwork bounds for 1500 files.

      It is not possible to create an action or keyboard shortcut for artboard options. It is not even possible to set and save another default artboard size.

      AI CS4 ships with sample scripts to add artboards, but I understand that it is not currently possible to write a script to modify the properties of a file's existing artboard.

      There are several messages on the Illustrator forums requesting help to create an action to crop the artboard to the artwork, so this must be a reasonably common problem.
