Move artboards between files

I’d like to know if it’s possible move artboards, with their contents, across open *.ai files.

I have two *.ai files, each with two artboards. I’d like to move two of the artboards from one file to the other, effectively merging the two files into one (I’ll delete the empty one). This is useful to minimize the number of different *.ai files I have, sorting them by content type and making use of the artboard mechanism that works so wonderfully.

I’ve read that it’s possible to save each artboard into a separate files (opposite of what I want).

I also know I can copy and paste the contents of an artboard (which is what I’ve been doing), but it would be cleaner to just move the artboard as a whole.

Is it really only possible through script?


As far as I’m aware, yes, Copy/Paste or the script (which copy/pastes for you) are currently the only options.
