I created a circle in illustrator.

To create an array, I added Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform.

The problem is, now I want the array of circles to be individual objects.

Is it possible to explode them somehow?



Object > Expand Appearance (if available)


Object > Expand


Object > Flatten Transparency and move the slider all the way to the right.

  • Thank you so much! I was clicking around for ages last night trying to find that! – John Jan 27 '15 at 9:52
