I have a bunch of artboards set up that I need to edit, but the labels are all overlapping making it impossible to know what's going on. How do I hide them?

example screenshot

Edit: I've hidden the blue dots with View > Hide Edges, but can't find where to hide the grey labels.

How about a script that records their position that can then be used to delete them when you dont need them and then reinstate them later as needed? – joojaa Jul 13 '14 at 22:18

There is no way to hide the labels entirely, however I can suggest you rename them and use some small symbol like "." for names, thus the labels will be very small and probably obscure the artwork less:

For that Goto to Window-> Artboards and then you can rename the artboards.

I don't believe there is any way to hide the labels.
