Been using Illustrator forever, never had this problem...
I create a custom crop area [either using the tool, or changing a shape to a crop area via the menu bar] - this used to work fine, i could then save for web and export the image...latley though this isn't happening.
Now the crop area is stuck to the artboard, regardless of any changes I make. I do ton of web work and my files are all over, so its not practical for me to resize the artboard and fit things into it.
Did I change a setting or press something i've been unaware of for 5 years?
Can anyone help me out? - BTW currently using CS3
In save for the web under Image size tab do you have use artboard selected if so uncheck it.
is there some sort of shortcut to do that? I've never gone into that tab ... ever - didnt know it even existed.
