FAQ

What is "Deep Scan"?

Deep scan is searching for layers that can be removed without changing document appearance. E.g. red square on red background if both have same tone. Or two duplicated layers above each other. Match must be pixel perfect and with exact color value.

I do use layer comps. Is that problem?

No. Document Cleaner will remove only items that won't affect appearance of other layer comps. So if layer is hidden in active comp but visible in another one then it can't be removed.

Does it remove locked layers?

It can do both. You can set option to ignore locked layers and cleaner will remove them. Or you can set it to keep locked layers. That is up to you to decide.

How do I clean only some groups, layers or artboards?

Select layers, groups or arboards in layers panel. Then click "Scan" or "Deep Scan". And in filter on left side turn on "Only selected layers". This will restrict cleanup only to layers that were selected before the scan. Note: if you select only arboard or group it will include all its content automatically.
