Toolbar: Tools > progeCAD Explorer> Purge ()
Cleans the drawing file of unused drawing elements. Use Purge to remove blocks, layers, linetypes, text styles, or dimension styles that you have defined but are not using in the drawing. Purging can significantly reduce the drawing file size.
Linetype definitions are purged only from the drawing; the definition in the icad.lin file is not purged.
If you have nested blocks in your drawing file, only one level of nesting is purged at a time. For example, say you create a block from a circle and insert two instances of this block into your drawing. Next, you create a block that consists of these two circle blocks, and you insert the new block into the drawing. If you delete the new block, you will still have an unused, nested block in the file. If you purge the file, the first block with the single circle remains in the file. You must use the Purge command again for as many times as there are levels of nested blocks. If one or more elements that you want to purge cannot be found in the file, a message is displayed listing those elements.
