Anyone using Illus CS4?

I upgraded from CS2 to CS4. In CS2 I could draw a box then go OBJECT>CROP AREA>MAKE and it would create a crop area. Then when I did a SAVE FOR WEB or EXPORT it would only export the area within the crop area. (I tend to have random crap off the sides of the art boards that i don't want exported as part of the image.) Well, because CS4 has the fancy multiple art boards capability the crop area thing is gone.

So... anyone know how the #%@$ I do this now to where the export of save for web is only the content of the actual art board. I've been googling and going through help and experimenting for about 40 minutes and I'm not finding an answer.

BLARGH!!! Okay, I think I finally figured it all out.

When exporting you have to tick the USE ARTBOARDS box and when using save for web there's a box to tick for CLIP TO ARTBOARD (which is on the older version but I never had to use it because I was using crop area).

So much new stuff going on here I just missed the stuff right in front of my face!

Uhhhh... carry on.

Yup, it stopped me cold for a couple of hours as well. I like it as a feature because it does give more options, but come on, warning people!

Well, since we have CS4 thread stickied.... here's another.

When I export as a TIFF (or JPG or PNG or any other) it automatically ads "-01" to the end of the name. Like "Bob01.tif" is turned into "Bob01-01.tif".... WTF?!?!
