I have a large piece that I want split onto multiple artboards so it can printed as mutiple pages. The work includes various paths and type on a plain white rectangle background.
Tile print function doesn't work because I need to send it out as a pdf, already tiled.
I've tried Object > Path > Split into grid... but that flattens the work into just rectangles. I can't flatten/rasterize the work because I need the layers intact.
It's a lot artboards and I will keep having to do a similar thing in the future so I'd really like to find an automated way to do it. Manually splitting the paths and placing the sections in artboards will take forever!

Guess you know that you can convert (multiple) selected rectangles into separate artboards through the Object menu > Artboards submenu, don't you? That can be done manually and sometimes it can be automated with an action or a script, preferably if the new artboards are going to be of the same dimensions. In case your task is more complicated, you may provide a sample Illustrator file with detailed instructions about the desired process.
