I have a bunch of artboards set up that I need to edit, but the labels are all overlapping making it impossible to know what's going on. How do I hide them?

Edit: I've hidden the blue dots with View > Hide Edges, but can't find where to hide the grey labels.

  • How about a script that records their position that can then be used to delete them when you dont need them and then reinstate them later as needed?

There is no way to hide the labels entirely, however I can suggest you rename them and use some small symbol like "." for names, thus the labels will be very small and probably obscure the artwork less:

For that Goto to Window-> Artboards and then you can rename the artboards.

I don't believe there is any way to hide the labels.


For your problem above @sanjaypoyzer, have you tried pressing Shift+O (O for oscar) - that should hide bounding boxes for art boards labels when you don't need them.
