Sheet Set Association

Hi all,

Is there any way to "open" a drawing, "remove association from Sheet Set",
save, close.
Simple.

Am tired of not being able to add drawings to a new Sheet Set. A PITA.

Normally if you try to import a drawing into a new sheet set, it will
give you the option of removing the drawing from a previous sheet set,
if it was part of a prior set.

You can also just right click on a drawings existing sheet set entry,
and it gives you an option to remove it from it's current set.

SSLOCATE set to 1 will automatically open an associated sheet set if a
drawing has one, to make it easy to "remove" it, if you don't know
which sheet set it might be part of.

Tim,

Thanks for the reply.
Doesn't really answer my question, though.
Let me explain.

* I want to remove a drawing from any association to a Sheet Set.
* I don't want to even so much as see the Sheet Set (assume it's on the
other side of the world).
* I don't want to see the "script blocker" dialog box that asks if you want
to remove, etc...
* I want to script a whole bunch of DWGs, delete any and all Sheet Set
associations from them.

From Jimmy's post above, the blog he points to says that the following
code, that can be run in a script file (so it can be done to multiple
drawings) can do the trick. I have not tested this though.

fileopen "x:\drawings\drawing1.dwg"
(dictremove (namedobjdict) "AcSheetSetData")
qsave
fileopen "x:\drawings\drawing2...

and so on.

Tim,

The LISP command looks like it does the job.
Anyone know how to stop the dialog box from coming up?
I'm talking about version 2005 since 2006 automatically removes
associations.
I'm running 2005 on one machine and 2006 on another. I can do the script on
my 2006 machine, but would be nice to know how to stop the dialog on 2005.

Thanks a lot everyone!

If you run the script with SmartPurger it automatically stops dialog boxes
like this one.
