It is not clear to me what you mean with Preview function.
In Illustrator you always in Preview, you can choose between Wire Frame (not in indesign), Color and overprint Preview.
I dont see what you want more.
I believe you are after an option of hiding non printing elements, and I am afraid that is not possible. Its natural place would be in the bottom of the Toolbox, as in InDesign.
Obviously, setting the Zoom level, you may make it match the entire Artboard (corresponding to the page), and you may also change between the different Preview modes under View, including switching to Overprint.
But I am sure you know all that.
I Agree, i can zoom in en stuff but the function they use in Indesigs i very helpfull. When you have a lot of stuff going outside the artboard.
I'ts often that i get suprised about the composition when I've printet my pieces. And thats always because my eyes are fooled by all the stuff i
got laying around my artboard... So i vwas just wondering if someone knew about a plugin thet made that possible.
Anyway tnx for the feedback....
btw parketgulv var det første jeg kom på og jeg regnet med at det var ledig som brukernavn
Oo now I understand.
Wel as far as I know that is not possible in Illustrator. The only workaroud there I can think about is looking at the pdf file in Acrobat.
One, possibly too silly, way would be to create two large rectangles, the smaller one corresponding to the Artboard and centred on it, the larger one being white and large enough to cover all outlying parts, select both, and Object>Compound Path>Make. You can Toggle Visibility in the Layers palette/panel to Show/hide the frame.
Jeg har heller ikke set Henrik som brukernavn.
Or a workaround...
1/ Create a new and exclusive layer... right at the top.
2/ Draw two rectangles... the inner one corresponds to your artboard. The outer one has sufficient margin to block out stuff close to the artboard
3/ Select both, make a compound path and fill with your choice of colour.
Now, toggle the layer on and off as required...
Oops! Overlapping posts!
To continue from posts #5&6, you may reuse the frame in other documents.
Hi Shunith. We seem to be just about equally silly.
