Illustrator scripting for charts
« on: December 11, 2008, 03:00:16 AM »


I'm not technically minded myself but often work with charts from Excel in Illustrator. Are there any scripts or add-ons I can use to remove all the unnecessary clipping masks, compound paths, and groups from Excel charts pasted into Illustrator? Or, if not, is there a good website that advertises the services of Illustrator developers?

Many thanks,

Hi Sam,

Illustrator is quite scriptable. I never attempted waht you are describing so I would know where to begin with an explanation.

And to answer your second question, for all your mac related development needs, go to This is a free service where you post your requirements and have developers bid on them.
