Has it ever happened to you to work in Adobe Illustrator, have some elements in your active artboard, and when you decide to move the artboard away, the elements are dragged together with the artboard? If you're not particularly used to working with multiple artboards you may wonder how to control that behaviour and may just ignore this annoyance. I will show you quickly how to fix this and actually get to use a few more functions along the way.
First of all, begin by setting up a new workspace and artboard. It's enough to just press Ctrl+N, to start a new document.
Draw a few shapes for test purposes just like I did:
Below you can see me grabbing the artboard and moving it. But you see that the three shapes move together with the artboard.
The first three icons (after the Move/Copy Artwork with Artboard) change the way the artboard is marked. The third icon is useful if you're preparing your artwork for export to applications like Adobe After Effects for editing videos, as it displays the 'safe areas' of your artboard. You can control how much content may be cut due to processing. It also focuses the audience's attention to the central areas of the artboard/footage.
Anyway, I hope this little tip was useful to you. I like digging deep in the software I work with (whenever I have the time to) and when I find some other useful feature, lurking in the dark, I sure will post it here :)
