How Do You Find The Dimensions of A Document in Illustrator?


Question

Is it possible to find the dimensions of an imported document in Illustrator? For example, if you drag a SVG into Illustrator (On Mac)/open a pre-made SVG, it doesn't necessarily tell you the dimensions of the document itself. If you wanted to recreate the document size, how would you do so?

Option 1. Load the graphic into Illustrator, select the artboard tool

and click and hold one of the corners, this will display a little tooltip with the height and width.

Option 2.

Click Window> Artboards. On the side a little artboards pane should appear, click the dropdown menu

enter image description here

then click "Artboard options." This will give you a dialog box with width and height displayed in the units set in Preferences (Edit> Preferences> Units...)
