I am new to Illustrator CS4, having used previous versions before.  I am going nut trying to simply crop, so that I can "save for web", in png, just a fraction of the page.  I have searched and I know that the new artboards are a new concept giving a headache when you begin with, that I need to learn if I want to enjoy CS4, but for the moment...

I have found that if I export, I can export just on artboard, but, I do not have any preview, and not so many graphic formats available.  Isn't there a way to do this with the "save for web"?  I just have one artboard of course, far on my mind for the moment to use multiple artboards.

Thanks in advance!
