I hope there is an obvious solution that I just don't know but when I save to pdf from illustrator I get a thin white line along the top, sometimes a side. It's really noticeable when I do full screen view. Yet in the illustrator document the colour is past the art board.Is this just an on screen viewing issue? or is it fixable, it will be viewed as a full screen pdf so I was really hoping i could figure out how to stop it.


first image is the block of colour over the art board

First image is in the art board

image save as pdf with white line

  • Its a visual anomaly. merely extend your items past the artboard edges slightly. There's no reason you need to align objects to exact artboard edges - when you save as PDF only the artboard dimensions will be visible by PDF reader. – Scott Apr 27 at 20:16
