Export vectors from Illustrator and trim out extra canvas to use in Latex


Is there a way to save an Illustrator file as pdf without the canvas? Somehow, when I save as pdf I always end up having the "whole" canvas saved with it. In contrary, when I export to, lets say png, I only get the actual drawn object.

Is there a possibility to save as pdf, because it will be a vector graphic instead of pixel, with only drawn object?

Accepted Answer

Probably, you would like this way

click on menu item Object->Artboards->Fit to Artwork Bounds and after that File->Save As... PDF as usual.

If you want artboard size back - just press Command-Z or if you on Win Control-Z after saving.

The same result you can achieve by pressing Shift-O (or clicking on the artboard icon) and choosing the option as on the picture -
