    Ungroup selected items and delete them

    The_Mossman

      Hello!

       

      I have a code that removes the tags (if there are tags) from objects and then deletes them.

      The problem is if tagged objects are grouped. Or even grouped objects in another group.

       

      I need to ungroup the selected objects and then untagging and deleting them.

       

      How can i do this?

       

      My current code:

       

      for (var iSel = app.activeDocument.selection.length-1; iSel >=0 ; iSel--){
           var currentSelection = app.selection[iSel];
                if (currentSelection.associatedXMLElement != null) {
                     currentSelection.associatedXMLElement.untag();
                     currentSelection.remove();
                }
                else {
                     currentSelection.remove();
                }
      }
