Clipping paths release shortcut needed

Recommended Posts


It would be helpfull to be able to assign a shortcut to the right-click menu option "release mask", and better if we could select different objects and apply this action.

When importing some files from other applications, we can find a lot of images that are only a coloured rectangle with a clipping path. If we only want curves and no images in ourĀ  files, we'll need, to delete those images and only keep the paths.
For example, it can happen with text, and in this case, we need to release the paths to get back the curves, delete the coloured image and recolour the resulting curves.
Without shortcut, it can be time consuming (it can happen to each beginning and ending character of a part of text, or different parts of an illustration exported as EPS).
