I would like to use the "info" panel in illustrator to have infos such as :

  • the distance of the top of an object to the top of the artboard it belongs to;
  • the distance of the left border of an object to the left border of the artboard it belongs to.

How can I easily achieve that?

This pictures shows what I want: enter image description here

  • This sort of automatic data reading functionality in relation to the artboard is not possible in Illustrator.

  • Some crazy person voted to close as "unclear what you're asking", without even bothering to ask for a clarification. That's crazy, it couldn't be clearer what this question is asking. Is someone voting to close at random?! Commented Apr 28, 2015 at 16:54

This should help! (at least it works on my system)

  • Hey, you're right! For me (on CS6) this only works when rulers are visible (view > show rulers), but with rulers visible, it does switch the info panel to use the currently selected artboard, which is the last one clicked on. Commented Apr 28, 2015 at 17:03
