Hey,

I think it could be useful to have an option to "create new document from selected art-board(s)". This would be a useful addition to the "New from Clipboard". I have had many situations where I want to create a new document from one or two of my existing art-boards. I can duplicate the file and then delete the art-boards don't need. Or I can create a new document and copy-paste. But this option would be more straightforward. :)

If you click the Artboard tool, you can Insert Artboard to convert to Artboard. Can also be used to make more Artboards

Thanks @MickRose but this was not what I meant (unless I misunderstood you). I have documents with multiple artboards set up. Quite often I want to continue with one of those in a separate file. I'd like to select the artboard and "create a new document from artboard". This way both the content and the page setup would be copied to a new document.

It think it could be useful and could fit in neatly under the exisiting option "new from clipboard" (with the added functionality of not only copying the content but also the page setup).

Have you tried selecting the artboard with the artboard tool and then copying, then New From Clipboard? It seems to work apart from the Document size which is much larger. Probably best to just save under a new name and remove the Artboards you don't want.
