How to cut "extra" lines in illustrator
Please tell me how do I get rid of redundant lines in illustrator?
I covered them up using a clipping mask, but when I go into Outline Mode I can still see/modify them. I'd like to get rid of them.
First, you may need a pathfinder. Which can be found on Window > Pathfinder.
Then do the following:
- Select the lines that you may need to cut it out, and then do Pathfinders > Outline.
(optional)2a. You may ungroup them, to select each individuals.
2b. Now, you can select the following excess lines by using any selection tool you like. I prefer, the main selection tool. Although, you may use direct selection tool, which I use it here, and remove them.
(optional)3a. If you are doing the 2a. You may need to select them again, and regroup them. Together.
