I'm trying to convert a vanilla rectangle to Artboard in Illustrator CS5. Using the rectangle tool, creating a 100x100 rectangle, selecting Object > Artboards > Convert to artboard, I get a error dialog saying "To create Artboards, select non-rotated rectangles that are not clipping masks."
Now, since my rectangle is not rotated or not a clipping mask, I have no idea what's wrong. Do you ?
NOTE: Have tried restarting Illustrator and tried multiple times. The problem is bound to that document only. That is, if I create a new document in Illustrator, I can easily create artboards with this method.
