Button to remove all groups and individual graphics located outside Artboard
While working in a file with many Artboards and while exporting each artboard to a separate EPS, AI carries over all graphics from the original file even if the graphics from each EPS file is resumed to it's artboard.
@Egor: I'll look it up, thanks for the suggestion. I'd heard of it before but somehow never got around to looking into it.
AlexM, Lance, check out VectorFirstAid plugin by AstuteGraphics.
You can set a checkup there to clear all off-artboard art and run it in a several clicks.
VFA is incredibly powerful when it comes to this mundane operations.
This seems like a work that actions can handle... if only Next/Previous Artboard commands could be recorded. So, alas, only scripts or plugins.
I thought I had a suggestion for you using the actions panel:
select > all in artboard
select > inverse
but as it turns out, it won't work with more than one artboard - the command in the select menu is "all on active artboard" but in my action is recorded as "select all in artboard". So, art on the currently active artboard is selected, not "any art on any artboard".
voting for this as it seems like it would be very useful.
