How can I get illustrator to automatically clip the artboard to the vectorized objects size?


I just exported a shape from photoshop as a path and then filled it in illustrator. I now want to save the shape as an svg, or eps but I don't want to save all the excess whitespace around the object. I want it to be cropped to the dimensions of the object and not the artboard. How can I do this in Adobe Illustrator cs6?

You can set the artboard to match the outer dimensions of any object by selecting the object and choosing Object > Artboards > Fit to Selected Art from the menu.
