hello and welcome to this video tutorial brought to you by Tessa 2.com in this video we are going to take a closer look at Art boards in Adobe Illustrator in the last episode i demonstrated how to create a custom workspace if you have not seen that episode the workspace is basically a panel set up here in adobe illustrator for this tutorial we will be using this workspace and along the way we will be with referencing the artboard panel which is

situated here next to my layers panel and if you can't see this you can simply select the panel up here to reveal it if you don't have the artboard panel active you can either skip to the previous video if you have not seen it or simply come up to the top menu select window and click artboard to activate your artboard panel to follow along with this tutorial you will need to open this document i have prepared especially for

this tutorial this can be found in the introduction folder in the project folder now you can download this project folder for free the link is in the description so with the project folder open click introduction our boards versions and selective version of illustrator you're using in my case it's CC and open the artboards file and you should have

something that looks like this ok so what are our boards in Adobe Illustrator well to put it simply they are canvases that make up a document adobe illustrator allows you to create multiple artboards in a document this is useful if you want to create small document spreads like a leaflet or a flyer or simply expand your workspace area to create various versions of your

artwork you could even use this method to create digital presentations so here i have a document open which is like a small D flat and we can see here that this consists of six portrait a for our board and as you can see i have numbered them and colored them accordingly now if we come over to our side panels and navigate to the artboard panel you

can see this panel contains a list this list represents all the artboards contained in my current document as you can see i'm currently zoomed out quite a bit so we can see the entire document artboard though if i choose a board in the panel let's say our board sexier come to the gray area to the right and double-click we can quickly navigate to that particular are bored if I double-click on the artboard name

however this will enable you to rename the artboard for example let's rename this artboard to orange six and click off ok so i'm just going to zoom out a little so we can see all of them ok so let's say we want to make some changes to the artboard arrangement let's say we want to reorder some of the artboards for example i'm going to select output for on the artboard panel and at the bottom of the artboard panel

we can see some buttons with the artboard for selected I'm going to press the move down back in a few times notice how the artboard moves down on the panel but nothing really changes on the campus area well this is because we now have to refresh the arrangement we can do this by coming to the top right hand corner of the artboard panel and click on the

menu icon then click rearrange our board up will pop up a window for now we are just going to click OK and upon click we will see the artboard has been repositioned if I want to move it back i'll simply select the artboard on the panel but this time click on the move up button once i'm happy i'm going to again click on the upward menu panel options button select rearrange our boards and click OK and the page is back where it

was to start ok so let's say we want to remove an artboard this can be done by selecting the outboard on the artboard panel let's say our board three simply come to the bottom of the artboard panel and click delete now notice how the artwork still remains so we are going to have to select the objects and then delete them though

now we have this space where the old ball it was just like earlier if we come to the top right of the artboard panel click and select rearrange our board then click OK the document will refresh excellent so what if we want to add some are boys what to do this we simply click a place on the article panel where we want to add a new board for example i'm going to select our board for in the panel then

click the new artboard button on the bottom of the artboard panel then i'm going to click on our board 5 on the panel and click the add new artboard again but notice this time how the Art boards are just added on the side well again if i come to the top right of the artboard panel and click the menu select rearrange take ok the document refresh and we can see the correct pagination nice i'm just going

to and do that as I don't want these pages now what if we want to add a new artboard but in a different size well here we can use the artboard tool if we come to the menu on the far left and look towards the bottom we have the ball tool if we click this you will notice we go into a new mode where we can attempt to create a new artboard so to begin

we can either click and drag to create a custom art board size or we can come up to the control panel and select from a list of presets and here we have a lot to choose from we have some paper sizes some screen sizes and some more ball and web screen sizes but since this is a print document let's go for a three and upon click the previously drawn our board is changed to

a three then I'm going to come up to the top and change the page orientation to landscape once I'm happy with this i can press v to activate the selection tool and click to jump back to the normal mode but notice how it appears oddly placed well again if i come to the top right of the artboard panel click the menu select rearranged click OK the document will refresh and we can

see the correct layout so what if we want to change the page orientation of an existing on board well to do this we simply click on our board let's say number two with the artboard selected i will come to the top right of the artboard panel click the menu button this time i'm going to select our Board Options upon click a different options

window will appear if you look closely you can see an orientation option currently we can see this is set to portrait if i click on to landscape and click OK you will now see the airport change from portrait to landscape by now you should now know what you need to do next we are going to need to refresh this layout so again if i come to the top

right of the artboard panel and click the menu select rearranged click OK the document we refresh but notice this time the artwork on the artboards have not moved with the pages so in this instance we are going to have to select the elements on the page and move them into the correct position for now i'm simply going to press and due to go back to my previous layout of sex artboards so that's how we can rearrange remove our boards and use the artboard

tool and change the orientation of existing are closed so currently my art boards are displayed in three columns here now what if i want to change this well this can be done quite simply if i come to the top right of the artboard panel and click the menu select rearrange up will pop the familiar options panel if we look closely we could see towards the top an option called layout and a series of icons to the right of this

these icons represent different our board composition layouts here in illustrator so currently we have our layout set to grade by row and with the columns sector three let's try changing this let's say five and press ok now you can see the layout has changed

if we come back to the rearranged menu like earlier but this time select the grid by column option and enter for Rose and click OK again the layout has changed if we come back to the rearranged menu again this time i'm going to select layout by column click ok and you can see the change I'm simply going to press and do a few times to go back to my previous layout

so that covers our boards in Adobe Illustrator in the next video we will be learning about some vector basics and how we can begin to operate in Adobe Illustrator so i'll see you in the next video
