When you have the artboard tool selected and click on a piece of vector art, it creates an artboard to the size of the vector. Is there a way to have it do that but automatically add set amount of space around it?Screen Shot 2022-12-14 at 7.39.52 AM.pngScreen Shot 2022-12-14 at 7.40.26 AM.png

Go to File > Document setup.

Or set up the bleed when creating the document.

ok, yes. but thats not what I am asking for. I would like it when I use the artboard tool to create an artboard the size of the vector, it automatically added a set amount of bleed.
