Why are bounding boxes the size of the page and not the object?

Recommended Posts

Is there anyway to control the size of a bounding box without scaling the page size down to the size of the object for every icon I create? I export an .eps from AD for import into Keynote. The .eps icon is only half an inch yet when imported into Keynote the bounding box is the size of the original page in AD that the icon comes from. When more .eps icons are added to Keynote, selection starts to become a problem because of the number of icons and the excessive bounding box size. Why is the bounding box the size of the original page and not the vector object itself and how can I reduce the bounding box without having to create new page that is the size of the icon for every icon? . . .

Select just the icon in the Layers panel then in the export screen set the Area: to Selection without background

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.
