    How to Remove Layer Groups by Name

    lynseyb44564496

      Hello - I am looking for help creating Javascript to remove Groups within Layers by Name. I began with an SVG file with different layers which I have subsequently saved as an AI file (Windows 7 Professional, Adobe Illustrator CS6). I now have many clipping mask bounding rectangles that cannot be removed, they are contained within groups named "SVGID." I previously ran a script to remove all clipping masks that deleted the unnecessary clipping paths, but I am still left with these SVIG groups that somehow contain the bounding rectangles. So I think the easiest way would be to run a script to remove all <Group> with name/label SVGID, but I am open to other suggestions. Thanks!!
