Question

I've got a ExtendScript that only works with paths and I've got a compound path, so how can I convert my compound path into a path?

Accepted Answer

Pathfinder -> Expand should work - if not could you post a screenshot of Illustrator?

The expand option does not break apart your compound path, but the objects it consists of - you will still have a compound path.

To break apart the compound object, go to Object > Compound path > Release.
