Clipped grid does not come with it when I drag, export as psd file or export specific layer. I'm sorry if this is really simple. I have started on this at 11 am, I have not moved out of my chair only to get up and go to bathroom. Anxiety starting to set in.

To export by layer you first need layers. There are only groups in that images.

Then use a layer export script. Such as this one, but there are others as well: https://gist.github.com/TomByrne/7816376

Is this really how the issue is solved? I have to go in for each and every object and do my best to cut out the extra stuff around it? Like so?

I have to save to some sort of losless file format? Then take it in a seperate Adobe photoshop and do my best to cut out the edges  when the edges are so fine??? And make it look blocky? Myback hurts so bad from sitting down for 13 hours.

The guy in Adobe Uservoice wasn't kidding. It was literally pain for me to sit down so long, I felt like going out and buying a xanax to just get 1 object exported with a clipping mask atttributed to it. I don't know about this anymore.

What I think I would do in your situation is: with the artboard tool, draw an artboard around each element you want to export rather than a clipping mask.

Then use the Asset Export panel to export artboards as whatever format you need.
