4 delete all empty elements

5 delete bitmaps if there are any

project steps.JPGIn the end i get clean project.

Probably doable with an action.

 

Can you share at least one sample Illustrator file (.ai), so one may have a look at it?

If selecting all embedded raster images is the only missing step that prevents your action from working, I would recommend to install Rick Johnson's "Select" plugin. It adds many useful items to Illustrator's Select menu commands. One of them will select raster images.

 

Those additional commands can be fully incorporated into any existing action.

 

There are other ways, but I think it is the most straightforward one.
