They all have it.

Your other apps might show differently, but they all have it.

Hi,

Go to View > Show/hide artboard options and see if that works out for you.

Thanks

You're talking about the WHITE area, correct? And it's bigger than you hoped? Did you want it to crop much closer to your calligraphy artwork that's seen at center? Is it possible that there was a different unit of measure being applied than what you thought you were using? Recheck your numbers a nd  be sure to note whether it is inches, mm, cm, etc.

Hope that helps
