    How can I delete everything outside of a clipping mask?

    MileHighJerome Level 1

      I am trying to set some files up for print by ganging them up on one sheet of material. I am working with supplied artwork that has a clipping mask around it. The issue I'm running into is the artwork outside of the clipping mask is giving me this error:

       

      "Can't move the objects. The requested transformation would make some objects fall completely off the drawing area."

       

      How can I completely delete everything outside of the clipping mask, without altering the artwork inside the clipping mask? I have already tried other suggestions, such as Object>Expand, and then using the Pathfinder to Crop... But that won't work. Nor will the Erase tool.

       

      Please help! How this isn't a standard feature by now is beyond me. This isn't the first time I'm running into this issue.
