weird shit

Hey apparently illustrator has a less known feature to hide artboard and background. I accidentally activated this with some keyboard shortcut. How do I go back to the normal view?

You turned on the "transparent grid". You can go to View > Hide Transparency Grid or hit Command/Ctrl+Shift+D.

instead of a transparent view in my case everything beneath my content is white only!? I don't have any borders for my Artboards... – Marten Zander Apr 8 at 11:44

If everything goes white and you want to see the defined dartboards - Command/Ctrl+Shift+H.

Dartboards? Do you mean artboards perhaps? – Darth_Vader May 6 at 20:26
