Illustrator keeps adding Video Rulers, Artboard Centermark, Artboard Crosshairs and a giant Artboard

Every time I create a new file and using no template, the default setup seems completely changed. It gives me one artboard the size I specified, a second artboard the size of the entire canvas, video rulers, and crosshairs/centermark per artboard. I have no idea why this has suddenly changed, but I don't see an option to go back to the behavior previously. Any solutions?

Your new files are based on the last one you created.

If that was based on a video preset, the next one will be based on that preset.

Choose another one; based on Print, Illustration...

Hi @Inventsable,

another simple way to change an already existing document with video preset into "normal" RGB-Document in three steps

 

At first your document looks like this:

videoPreset2normalDoc0.png

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

Step 1

uncheck the green video ruler

Step 2

uncheck transparency grid

Step 3

uncheck all green guides (two ways possible)

(uncheck all options for the green haircross and other green marks for the compatible area)

Done:
