So I'm having a problem I've never had before. I have objects that border the edges of the art board. Illustrator is trying to include the contents of those objects that are outside of the art board when I try to export to PNG.

This is the document: enter image description here

This is the file its trying to save: enter image description here

How do I fix this? TIA

The "Clip to Artboard" checkbox is your ticket!
