Can you lock all other artboards (or their content) so this gets not affected by any command like "select same stroke colour" etc
There is not an actual way in CC-2014 Illustrator to lock the artboard per the
Artboards panel I am aware of:
Window -> Artboards for anyone curious to gain access to it)
I use my Layers Panel (
Window -> Layers or F7) and I create a main/top layer called the artboard (example
Artboard_1 then create sub Layers naming them. I then go back and just lock the layer for that artboard when I do web design mockups:
thanks for your layer approach. this is an attractive alternative. Meanwhile I discovered the following, which I find quicker, since I'm not the sorting guy.
1) made a shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+I for "Selection>Inverse" - than locking all with CTRL+2 — now you are free to work on the remaining unlocked items
2) custom shortcut ALT+CTRL+SHIFT+I for "isolate Selected Object" but this works only on separate selections if you group them first before isolating (recognizes not multiple objects but groups, anyways..nailed it
Hope that helps & many thanks for this info!
