Join William Everhart for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a PDF presentation, part of Illustrator: Package Design.
…PDFs are everywhere and with good reason.…They're easy to create and can be viewed on a vast array of devices.…So, how do you go about creating a PDF presentation of your design?…So, here, once again, you can see the various art boards of my design.…And I want to export these as one cohesive PDF.…So the first thing we need to take at look at is the art board order.…Over here in my Art Boards panel,…this first column represents the Art Board number.…
And when it comes to a PDF, you can almost think of these as the page numbers.…This is the order in which these items will be stacked in the PDF.…So no matter what their orientation here is on screen, the only…thing that really matters is the order in which they are stacked here.…So if you wanted to make the label the first item in…the PDF, you need to change it here in the Artboards panel.…Now, to do that, I simply grab the Label…Artboard list item here and just drag it up.…
So, even though the artboard did not move on the screen, it will…change its stacking order, and it will be the first item in the PDF.…
