Whenever artboards are made in Photoshop, the crop tool no longer works. I made a document with about 5 artboards and I needed to crop a selection for a moment that I would undo shortly after. However every time I select the Crop Tool I instead get the Artboard Tool.

Documents with Artboards don't have a traditional canvas. The canvas of the entire project auto grows or contracts when Artboards are added or removed from the file. If you need to crop an Artboard, click on the edge to reveal the handles to redefine the bounds of an artboard.

if you need to trim a layer on an artboard, use a marquee/mask and not the crop tool.

@JeffreyTranberry That is so backwards. Once you have the artboards you want to have the ability to throw everything away that is not within the bounds of the artboard. You need this function to keep your filesizes manageable. So why the crop tool doesn't work on artboards is beyond me. 

I don't want to bother with 6GB psb's. I want to be able to clean up and throw everything out I don't need.
