Learn about the new options for locked and/or hidden artwork when moving artboards.
- [Instructor] I don't know how many times…the following has caught you out…but I know it's caught me out plenty of times.…I've got some artwork here on an artboard…and what I want to do is I'm going to create a new iteration…of that, so I'm going to copy the artwork across,…so basically drag the artboard over.…So I'm going to select the artboard tool here,…and just before I drag it, you'll notice that…one of the items here is locked and do you know what?…Just for fun, I'm going to hide another one,…so if I select the hexagon here for example,…what I'll do is I'll just turn that off so it's hidden.…
So what I would have done previously,…if I'd dragged the artboard across,…I'd discover that it left things behind…and then I'd have to go back to the artboard…and then unlock and unhide the things I wanted to copy…across with it and then drag it across.…Well, that doesn't happen anymore.…You see, if I hold down the alt or option key here…and drag the artboard across,…everything gets copied with it.…I can now turn on the item that I hid there…
