Is there a way to tell illustrator to create a shape that is the same size as the art board when creating a new doc?
EX: I'm creating a wall wrap that is 158x103.
- I start by creating a new file with the art board set at those dimensions.
- The I have to create a box that is the same size as the art board.
My Question - Can illustrator create a shape to the art board size automatically without me having to put the document size in twice?
yes, it's possible with a script. Are you trying to write your own scripts?
Potenitally - Not sure how to set that funtionality though
Copy link to clipboard
That would be a nice feature for the rectangle tool.:)
Best you can do without scripting, is with any document in correct color mode open
If all you want is a rectangle the same size as the artboard, that can be done with one line of code.
app.activeDocument.pathItems.rectangle(0, 0, app.activeDocument.width, app.activeDocument.height);
