Saving artboards adds space around the contents

  1. The artboard looks right when I go to save it.
  2. I choose either save as or save for web.
  3. Added space appears around the artboard
To resolve the issue I used Trim transparent pixels. This is surprising because the artboard pixels were filled to the edges until saving. Using Trim transparent pixels caused the artboard to shift as though invisible artboard area had been removed.

The full canvas can extend past an artboard to encompass multiple artboards or pieces that are not in the artboard... By default the artboard tool has a setting enabled called "Auto-SizeCanvas" that resizes the canvas whenever there's stuff outside the artboard.

You can turn that on and off by selecting the artboard tool and clicking on the little gear icon in the tool properties up at the top of the window...
