Multiple Artboards Roundup–Tutorials, Resources and More

Contributed by Terry Hemphill, Illustrator Product Marketing Manager

Since there’s been a lot of discussion here on multiple artboards in Illustrator CS4, I want to round out that focus with links to resources for customers who are just becoming familiar with this new feature or customers who have downloaded the free 30-day trial and are looking to experiment.

First, if you’re using an older version of Illustrator and would like to experience multiple artboards in Illustrator CS4, you can download the Illustrator CS4 free trial here.

AdobeTV has a number of free video tutorials on multiple artboards in Illustrator CS4:

  • Deke McClelland, of, provides a general introduction to document setup, which includes the basics of multiple artbaords, then goes in to more depth in a later segment.
  • Mordy Golding, author of Real World Illustrator blog, step us through exporting multiple atboards for use in Flash.
  • Rufus Deuchler, Wordwide Adobe Evangelist and blogger, shows how to save editing time with multiple artboards.
  • Rafael “RC” Concepcion, from Layers TV, shares a tip on using multiple artboards to deliver a consistent design concept.
  • Some other great tutorials:

  • Dave Cross, from Layers Magazine, shows us how to use multiple artboards to take Illustrator art to Photoshop and InDesign.
  • vectips gives a quick tip on using guides with multiple artboards.
  • Terry White, director of systems engineering at Adobe and author of the Creative Suite Video Podcast, provides his insight into taking advantage of multiple artboards.
  • And from the Learning Resources team at Adobe, the Illustrator Help topic Using multiple artboards.

    I’m sure I’ve missed many other great resources, so if you’ve one you’d like to share with others, please let me know.
