Save multiple artboards as a single PDF page, not a PDF with multiple pages

Hey!

I'm creating a booth graphic that is cut into multiple panels, so I have it spanning across multiple artboards. I want me client to review the entire piece in a single page. All of my exports are putting each artboard on a separate page, be it saving a PDF copy or a PNG export.

Any way to do this easily without having to create a new document that is one artboard and copying and pasting the whole thing over? I've looked via Google and found no solutions.

Thank you for your time


Scot

Artboards can overlap. You can create a single Artboard that encompasses all your individual "panel" Artboards. Then Save As… just that one large Artboard to a PDF for your client to review.JET

Thank you for the reply.

Yes, I can just create a another document with the dimensions of all the artboards I have now as one artboard, then copy and paste my art to that one artboard and save out a single page PDF. I wanted to avoid having to do that.

I guess there is no way to save out multiple artboards as a single page/single image?

Thanks again.

You don't need an additional document, just an additional artboard.

Just draw one artboard with the Artboard tool that encompasses all the existing artboards.

Another approach. Position your 3 artboards horizontally so that they are touching each other.

Draw a rectangle that covers all 3 artboards and arrange it to the back. It can be white with no stroke so that it doesn't show when printed.

Choose File > Print and select the PDF print driver.

In the print dialog, put a check mark on Ignore Artboards.

Your file will print on a single PDF page.

Why do that when you can use Save a Copy, choose PDF and select just the artboard you want?
