Ruby: Design Screen

Once you open the design in Design Screen you should see the artwork you've created. You will be able to see artboard size, as well as all the colours and lines were all retained.

The design screen is split into 3 columns:

Fit to Design

As we created the whole design in Illustrator already the only thing we would probably want to do is reduce the size of the artboard to the design.

We could do this in Illustrator but Ruby offers a tool to do it automatically by selecting "Fit to design" in the toolbar which will prompt you for a margin size, we'll leave this as 0.00mm and click "Fit to design":

After you'll see the white area of your artboard has been made to perfectly fit the design we created, this might seem like a simple task, but it makes it easy to tightly pack multiple designs onto a piece of material.
