I will find myself often resizing art boards in illustrator when Im designing websites (if a page needs to be longer or shorter) and wanted to know if there is a way to trim away transparent pixels on an art board just like in photoshop. Right now I just use the art board tool to resize it manually but if theres a quicker way Im all ears. It would be quite a nifty tip to know

    There are in general no pixels in illustrator. But yes you can fit to the bounding box. – joojaa Oct 31 '14 at 22:54

In general, Object > Artboards > Fit to Artwork may help.


You can also use the Artboard Tool and double click on the object you wish the artboard to be around.
