How to change the color of the artboard in Adobe Illustrator?
It is practically impossible to edit a white illustration on the default white artboard background.
Hiding the artboard makes the whole work area receive the artboard's white color.
So, is there a way to change the color of the artboard in Illustrator CC?
The easiest way to see white artwork in Illustrator is by opening the View Menu and selecting Show Transparency Grid. This gives your white artwork something to contrast with. You can adjust the color of the grid by going to 'File â†’ Document Setup'.
