posted by: Iaroslav Lazunov, in Illustrator Tips / Small Tutorials/ Comments: 0

The VectorFirstAid plug-in is designed to clean up files in Adobe Illustrator. With the use of this plug-in, you can also improve the organization and editability of vector objects. Dozens of routine, time-consuming operations are now automated. Less routine, more time for creativity!

In today's article you will learn how to check and clean an open document.

To open the VectorFirstAid panel, go to Window > VectorFirstAid > VectorFirstAid panel.

To start the document checkup manually, you must click on the Check Document button.

It is also possible to automate the checking process by clicking on the schedule button. In the window shown below you will see various options which will be covered in later tutorials, but you may wish to begin experimenting with these now.

You can choose what you want to have checked when launching the checkup manually or automatically. To do this, select Configure in the Manual checkups drop-down menu or in the Auto checkups drop-down menu.
