could you explain the difference between the two modes?
Artboard and NOT artboard

because if I create an artboard I can't insert the bleed ??

Wouldn't it be appropriate to be able to decide during the Document creation phase how many artboards to create instead of manually adding them then ??

Artboards are discrete design areas, of any shape and size, within the same document, on which you can place design elements. Objects which extend beyond the boundary of an artboard are clipped to the edge of the artboard's design area.

Using artboards, you can convert a single page document into a multi-page, multi-product design project. Their true power lies within their flexibility—artboards have limitless uses.

The size of artboards can be based on presets or customized to suit your needs. They can be moved and resized just like other objects in a document and can be arranged in any way you want—sometimes this will be important to the outcome of the design, other times it simply helps you organize your work.

Artboards also possess their own colour and opacity properties, so these can be adjusted at any time during the design process.

Artboards can be exported and printed together or separately, but are all saved together in their parent document.

Le tavole da disegno sono aree di design discrete, di qualsiasi forma e dimensione, all'interno dello stesso documento, su cui è possibile posizionare elementi di design. Gli oggetti che si estendono oltre il confine di una tavola da disegno vengono ritagliati sul bordo dell'area di disegno della tavola da disegno.

Utilizzando le tavole da disegno, puoi convertire un documento a pagina singola in un progetto di progettazione multi-pagina e multi-prodotto. Il loro vero potere risiede nella loro flessibilità: le tavole da disegno hanno usi illimitati.

Le dimensioni delle tavole da disegno possono essere basate su preimpostazioni o personalizzate in base alle proprie esigenze. Possono essere spostati e ridimensionati come gli altri oggetti in un documento e possono essere disposti in qualsiasi modo tu voglia, a volte questo sarà importante per il risultato del design, altre volte semplicemente ti aiuta a organizzare il tuo lavoro.

Anche le tavole da disegno possiedono le loro proprietà di colore e opacità, quindi possono essere regolate in qualsiasi momento durante il processo di progettazione.

Le tavole da disegno possono essere esportate e stampate insieme o separatamente, ma sono tutte salvate insieme nel loro documento principale.

I still don't know the difference in creating a document without the artboard check

Without the artboard checked you have a single page/canvas. If you wish to have more you must use Artboards. You could just make a large canvas and export your work based on your selection, but Artboards offer more organisation.

One thing you cannot do when using Artboards is Clip to Canvas, i.e hide any object that is outside the canvas bounds, any object that is partially outside of the artboard will not show outside of the artboard.

I see.
I wonder:
1. Practically the double function is useless (superfluous), one could, should always use one or more artboards!

2. in artboard mode, there is no possibility to hide the display of everything that is not part of the artboard? so also the guides, margins, etc. as happens on indesign with the W key
it would be useful and necessary.

3. Is there no way to turn any carrier into a guide?
     But to delete a guide you have to go to the guide management panel to eliminate them or is there any command?

4. The panel manages guides, certainly useful for many things, even for columns etc ... but I find it quite inconvenient .. to move a guide every time you have to go to recall the panel and change it, much more intuitive as it works in Adobe, would be better!
