Just installed Illustrator CC. Coming from PS, I would really like to see a 'transparent' background in my layers. In PS, you see a checkered background when no pixels are present in the canvas -- would love the same in Illustrator but it defaults to white and I can't seem to figure out how to disable it. Help appreciated!


from the menu, select View / Show Transparency Grid

or hit Cmd+shift+D
