I don't have time to research this because I'm on deadline—any help would be appreciated. Why do new files I try to make in Illustrator have what looks like a gunsight pattern over a greyed-out checkerboard? Why would anyone even want that? Anybody know how to stop this?

Don't use a video preset when creating a new file.

Enable the artboard tool, turn off safe areas and all that or simply hide it from the view menu.

What @Monika Gause already said.


To change an already existing document with video preset into "normal" RGB-Document try the following "three" steps

 

At first your document looks like this:

---------------------------------------------------

Step 1

uncheck the video ruler

Done:

Or another simple way:
Copy and paste the content into a new document (e.g. with RGB preset).

 

If that works for you
have fun
