Has this got anything to do with your preferences setup where your borders might be set to line?

  • I was going to suggest this, yet in addition I think it assumes you will have a background too—in which case you wouldn't see that. Regardless, this is just in the UI. I don't think you need to worry. Jun 28, 2015 at 13:39
  • This was annoying me so much - it actually hinders my ability to see when I have the artwork properly aligned on the artboard! So glad it was possible to remove!

  • Press Ctrl/Command+K.

  • Select option interface → artboards, set border from line to none.

  • Save the settings and you’re good to go.

  • You solved the Adobe's damn puzzle! Thanks for sharing! I was seeing a weird 1px border, and then I resized elements but that border was still there and I couldn't find a border on my layers and that thing was driving me to crazy. You helped me a lot :) Nov 25, 2019 at 5:40

If I set Preferences -> Interface -> Border to Line. The canvas now looks like this:

It's zoomed in, you can see the 1px line bounds around the artboard.

  1. Select the artboard by either clicking the title in the content area, or from the layers panel.

  2. Right click / cmd + click and'Ungroup Artboard'
