If it's possible, how do you give the artboard a background color? Clicking on the artboard hides the "Styles" tab.
Artboards can't carry styles right now.
The easiest workaround is to make a self-directed box that's the same size as the artboard (
0 spacing all around) and give that a background color. You can lock that layer (
L key) and keep it at the top of the tree so it's behind all of your other elements.
Thank you, I'll try that workaround.
