What do you mean exactly? 'Artboards' have never been a feature in any Elements version, only in the full Photoshop. It would help if you describe your problem more in details or better, show a screenshot.

ok basically I have 5 layers on a clipboard, white background, I am working on an illustration.
The illustration is b/w line art. 4 of the layers are showing on the clipboard . But the b/w line ONLY shows on the clipboard when I click on its layer, but I should be able to see it on the clipboard WITHOUT clicking on its layer. The line also shows when printed out on the printer.
I have not had this problem before. I have also brought the layer to the front.

What is the Line Width that you used?

Do you see the line if you view your image at 100% (actual pixels) view?

Hi JEA 
I don't see the line when viewed at 100% but I see the line on the  clipboard  when I click on the shape layer as soon as I click off it disappears

Hi Jea I used a 1px but I just tried view actual pixels and I could see the line but as I said when working on the illustration to fit screen if I click off of the layer I can't see the line in situ. Help!

What color did you have set before you drew the line?

Could you post a screenshot of the Line Tool settings in the tool options bar?
