All of the threads related to the purge command seem to be referring to the part and/or assembly files, but I am trying to find a way to purge unused items from a drawing file. ( unused blocks, etc)
Purge only exists for parts and assemblies as far as I can tell. What are the "etc" things you want to purge (other than blocks)?
Coffee cup stains, spilled barbecue sauce.....things like that.
Thanks for the reply Josh. much appreciated.
You can still purge unused items from drawings, it's just a very manual way to do it.
If you would like to delete unused blocks, look in the featuretree on the left. There should be a folder for blocks. In there you should be able to differentiate the used blocks from the unused ones.
You can also do the same for notes and such tough I don't see much of a use. If you use a lot of blocks to make your notes then perhaps it is worth it for you to take the time to delete them but if you barely use them I wouldn't spend time on it as you probably won't see a difference.
It would be so much easier to have a command that would let you get rid of any of the blocks that you are not using. It is easy to delete them from the drawing, but why to the hang out in the blocks folder when you do that?
Then you end up deleting some block that you don't want to that some body did not save properly or rename so it says "block 4895" and what is it do I need it?
Have a look at the symbol next to the block name, it should tell you if the block is still being used. If I remember correctly, when the symbol is blurred the block is not used and if it isn't blurred then it is still being used.
shoot I thought I was just getting more blind, and needed better glasses. top 10 next year hope the purge on drawings makes it.
