Hi folks.

 

I was able to copy artboards before by hold put the cursor on the top left corner of the artboard, hold the ALT key and drag the artboard to create a copy. Now when I do the same thing, a square is drawn with the centre at the top left corner of the artboard. What can I do to copy the artboard?

 

Thanks in advance.

I had already clicked that tool. I should have mentioned that in my post.

I've copied artboards many times before, but as of a few days ago, it stopped working the way it should.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about this. Would you mind sharing version of the OS & Illustrator? Does it happen with a specific document or all?

You may try resetting preferences of the app and see if it helps.

**Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.

Let us know how it goes. Looking forward to your response.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
