Clean Up

Cleaning up stray points and places where you accidentally clicked with the Type tool can be really helpful. An easy way to clean up your artwork is to choose Object > Path > Clean Up, and select what to clean up (see Figure 10).

Another way to clean up your document is to remove unused swatches, brushes, etc. like you saw earlier, when we were discussing actions. Choose Window > Actions and click to select the Delete Unused Panel Items action. Click the Play Current Selection button (see Figure 11).
