How do I get rid of the white artboard in Illustrator?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 6:37 pm

When you create a document in Illustrator, the default background color is white. If you want to change the background color, you can do so by choosing Window > Background and selecting a new color.

However, if you want to get rid of the white background, there is a workaround.

PRO TIP: If you are working in Illustrator, it is important to be aware that there is a white artboard that appears by default. This artboard can get in the way of your work, so it is important to know how to get rid of it. To do this, simply go to the ‘View’ menu and select ‘Hide Artboard’.

First, make sure that the document is open in Illustrator. Next, choose Window > Workspace > New Window. This will create a new, blank window in your Illustrator document.

Now, you can choose whatever background color you want for your new window. Finally, select the white background in your original document and click the “Delete” button to remove it.
