Finishing up the illustration

To finish the illustration, you will drag the artwork you grouped on each artboard into the main illustration on the left.

  1. Choose View > Fit All In Window.
  2. Choose View > Smart Guides to turn them off.
  3. Drag each of the artwork groups into the main illustration like you see in the figure.

    You may want to adjust the size of each group so they fit within the existing artwork better. With the Selection tool, you can hold down the Shift key and drag a corner point. When finished resizing, release the mouse button and then the Shift key.
