    I've just posted a similar idea in the wrong place and I've been re-directed here. I wrote....

    1. Lock Artboards - this makes the objects on a locked artboard unselectable/editable overriding individual settings.


    2. Hide Artboards - removes the artboard and work on it from view. Helps remove distractions from view, especially when you're showing your Art Director the latest work!


    3. Local Editing Mode - illustrator already notionally works on one artboard at a time... the one that's zoomed to with Cmd-0, or pasted to with Cmd-V... perhaps there could be a mode switch, simial to the 'Draw Inside' mode where all operations are confined to objects on the current artboard. Useful for Cmd-A for example. This would override unlocked artboards of course! This mode of operation is already familiar in InDesign where only current-spread object appear in the layers.

    Which is largely the same as this request with the addition of part 3.
