I'm trying to send an AI file as an EPS file for engraving and they want only the artwork inside/on the active artboard - because I started with a file of many artboards and then separated them into 20 different files, with an individual artboard in each file but elements of the neighbouring artboards' design (text on a curve that spans several boards) also showing on the grey area around the artboard.
Exporting as EPS doesn't have the option of using artboards only like a jpeg does. Really finding it a bit odd I can't just crop the artboard!
I've tried making a rectangle and Object: Path: Divide, but this isn't doing anything.
I am a beginner with AI, would very much appreciate advice! Many thanks.
