    I think it's now known as "object select by path only" in the General Preferences dialogue

    Hi!
    I have the same problem!
    When I save as PDF from illustrator, it takes in consideration all that is in the page, all the clipping masks, even if they exceed the borders of the art-board!

    How can I export the PREVIEW only, without teh "space" of all the rest?

    Did anyone solve this? I tried checking the "object select by path only" in the preferences, but nada....

    Million thansk for any clues!

    Sakki - Before you save as PDF, do one of the following:
    Draw a rectangle around the area you wish to be included in your PDF, and with it selected go to Object - Crop Area - Make.
    Or, if you want the PDF to be the size of your page, apply the Crop Area command with nothing selected.

    Owou!
    Thanks Gary!
    I wasn't aware of that feature...
    I enlarged my page, and applied the crop area...!

    The only thing is though, that it does not allow the application of trim marks, as defined in the presets of the PDF...
    So, I tried to add in illustrator crop marks (as a filter), but the offset of them is a bit too far, and I can't see how to modify that...

    Is there a way to still have the trim marks made in Acrobat-although I use the crop area command?

    thanks so much!
