Crop Image to Artboard Option
When creating multiple graphics with high-quality images, it would be great if there was an option to select when cropping an image that automatically cropped the image to the size of the artboard.
Lev, do you mean to 'clip' (which can be done with a linked image) or to actually 'crop' (which will have to embed the image to trim it)?
First one is possible with scripts. Here is one you can try: https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/script-for-applying-an-artboard-sized-clipping-mask-to-selection/td-p/12823127
The second one... Well, there is a request for a functions to crop clipped embedded images to the bounds of the clipping mask: https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/333657-illustrator-desktop-feature-requests/suggestions/35456389-convert-a-clipping-mask-into-a-crop
...and some solutions exist. So it is possible to use two script for this, wrapped into one action, for example.
I am not saying the request is not valid, though. Voted.
