Remove Clipping Mask Easily on Illustrator

Did you ever open an Illustrator file with so many annoying clipping masks? In my case, I got frustrated on locating the specific layer that I am trying to select but those pesky clipping masks are blocking the way. Luckily, the solution to this was a script file. Today, I am saving the headache for you by sharing you the file on the download button below.

In this quick demo, I downloaded a vector file from that has few clipping masks. To be able to remove clipping masks this using the script, here are 3 easy steps.

STEP 1 - Put the script file on easy access location...... Like desktop maybe...
Once you've downloaded the script file, you can put it on the most accessible location on your drive, regardless if it is in the deepest darkest folder on your drive or if it's out in the open on your desktop. As long as you know where to find it, it's up to you.

STEP 2 - Find the script file
Open the script by doing File > Scripts > Other Scripts then locate your script file on your drive.
STEP 3 - Open the script file
Once you open that script file, it will automatically locate all the clipping masks and remove it all at once.

There you go! Hope this helps you by not painstakingly locating all the clipping masks and removing it one by one. Now you got an all-new unclipped mask illustrator file.
