Cleaning Up Your Illustrations

Before printing a file, you can do yourself a favor by “cleaning it up.” First, from the Object menu choose Path>Clean Up. In the dialog, make sure you select the Stray Points and Empty Text Paths checkboxes. Click OK to delete all these unneeded points. If you’re sending the document to an outside printing service, you may also want to go to the Swatches palette and use the pop-up menu to choose Select All Unused. Then click on the Trash icon at the bottom of the palette to delete the swatches. Save the document (File>Save), and you’re ready to go.
