Artboard delete tool
This is really nitpicky but the little X at the top right of the artboard tool is too small and more often than not I end up creating a new artboard around the object at the top right of the artboard. Possibly make the cross larger or move it somewhere else to remove this problem?

Yogesh Sharma - If I have a lot of artboards to delete I've learned to start at the last in line, as the next to last becomes highlighted for deletion next. But, there are times when I can see a bunch of artboards scattered about that I need to delete. You have to click on the one you want then hit delete (2 steps). Or if you are lucky, hit that little x (1 step) without accidentaly creating a new artboard.
A larger X might speed that process up. Or, at the very least, if you select the artboard, add
"delete" to the right click of the mouse. (a faster 2 step process).
You can hit the Delete key to delete the artboard. Does that not work for you?
