Has anyone found a plugin/script for checking for open paths in CS6?

I've been using this handy script from Vector Boom (the link's towards the bottom of the page, but their knife tool tutorial is also useful). It took me a bit to get used to running a script rather than a plugin but so far, it's working well. Hope it helps!

Thanks for the link Except for the Graffix one though (which isnt available for CS6) those seem to be closing the paths rather than just selecting them. Basically I just want the open paths highlighted to see if there are any with fills but not close the ones that does not have a fill. Is there a way to select open paths in Illustrator CS6 without using scripts/plugins that I have missed?

Here you go, I wrote a quick script to select all open paths. Works in CS6. Here's another one that also closes all open paths.

This one only crashes my CS6, I've tried it every which way, and I cannot make it work.

Hey, thanks for the plugins At first they seemed to work for me, they closed the paths, then the file seemed to be ok, no open paths and I say 'Ok, let's submit' and now I have a rejection for open paths, and as I open the file I see that all the 'closed' files, actually remain open. I tried to close them again, again it all seems ok, but as I save and close the file, and reopen it, again the paths are open... it's like, the script works fine, but until you close it and reopen again.... so far I couldn't find a good plugin for CS6 to work for me...

I wanted to point out that any of the above techniques work at first until I reopen the file... has anyone had this problem? No matter how many times I save the image, when I reopen it nothing has changed - I have the same amount of open paths.... Why is this happening?

Hi EvelynZa,

Make sure all your layers are unlocked when you use the "CloseOpenPathsCS6.jsx" script. I tested it and it worked fine even after I closed and re0pened the file. But I did check my layers first. The "Select Open Paths" script at  Adobe Forums is what I use to select the paths. It has an alert to warn if layers are locked. I noticed that the NicholasKinney script to close paths does not have a warning.

I haven't had any problems with open paths since I found the script mentioned above http://www.aridocean.com/scripts_en.php


(from Michael Schmeling) it is excellent and works with CS6 as well!
