Possible there could be a crop tool to crop Designer

Not sure what you are attempting to do. Have you tried the existing vector crop tool?🙂

VectorCat, I'm a noob with the iPad version, but as far as I can tell, AD offers only the Vector Crop tool instead of a "real," destructive Crop tool. (That's not a slam against the Vector Crop tool--it's great at what it does.)

So far the quickest way I have found to make a document fit the art is to select the desired art and Copy, then close the current document, create a new one, and choose the the "New From Clipboard" option.

The results have been what I wanted in the cases I've tried, but I'm not sure this will work as well if you already have a Vector Crop hiding pixels in a large image. There's probably a way to "freeze" the Vector Crop and make it discard hidden pixels when dealing with images, but as a noob, I don't know it.
