    This feature works ok, but there's a bug. If you create a 600px x 600px artboard and then move it without the align pixel feature and then turn it ON afterwards. The artboard does NOT snap to the nearest pixel when you drag it. Illustrator remembers the decimals of the current non-pixel aligned position and adds or removes whole pixels. So then you'd think that you could just click the "align to pixel" button next to the snap, but that doesn't MOVE the artboard to the nearest pixel, it also RESIZES the artboard.

    Please just make an artboard "snap" to whole pixels when you have the snap-to-pixel turned on. Remove all the decimals when you use this option. that will fix it..

    Yes, this isn't great. It never used to be like this, and then Illustrator decided to change this behaviour. Surely the presets can have whatever they like in their document, but when you make a NEW one based on that preset, it should translate the internal document units to your preferences value, e.g.
    Letter 612pt x 792 pt => open as new => Letter 8.5" x 11"
    A4 841.89pt x 595.27pt (wtf?) => open as new => A4 210mm x 297mm

    Depending on if you are setup as mm or inches.
    PS. USA is the only metric hold-out for consumers - most of the industries have already switched or have accelerated their switch to metric after the Hubble Space Telescope metric/imperial disaster for NASA. LOL!

    Yeah. Even in a much more newer program like sketch, you can literally select and copy artboards from one document and paste them with all their background/guides/hidden layers and object between files. In fact you can also actually drag artboards between pages and also between documents.

    This is a sorely needed feature for illustrator. Imagine you designed icons using a grid template in various files. Now you have to hand-over a single file and merge all 100 icons into a new file. That's going to be a really tedious process if you can't merge files/artboards easily.
