Some kind of print guides or margins or something showing, never seen before and can't hide them.

I've been working on a file in Illustrator and using the PDF format (since I opened a PDF export from Excel of some graphs). When I did a Save As… the file opened in Acrobat (as it does when checked to do so) and I'm seeing a green rectangle on the edge of the page and a red rectangle which appears to be the page's object bounds.

Never seen this kind of thing before without explicitily turning it on in Prepress work a million years ago.

Anyhow when I open the PDF in Apple Preview or Firefox browser they are not there but when I open in Acrobat they are there. I reverted to the old Acrobat and they're still visible.

What are they and how do I make sure the person I wanted to submit this file to 4 hours ago doesn't see them?

Go to the application's Preferences, Page Display and tick off "Show art, trim & bleed boxes".

Thanks, I was looking in the Menu bar items, and wasn't sure why only this file not others.

It so long since I opened AI files in Acrobat I guess i forget that AI will introduce bleed and trim settings.
