Remove wipeouts

Is there an easy way to remove all the wipeouts in a drawing without deleting the entities they are attached to?

I have hundreds in some drawings, so I am trying to do a mass editing through lisp, but it won't remove just the wipeout, the text grouped with it gets deleted too. Any ideas?

Use combination Ctrl+H (or Pickstyle set to zero) then delete the wipeout.

Here is a small lisp routine I picked up somewhere which removes wipeouts

 

(defun c:gowipe (/ b)
 (setvar "pickstyle" 0)
 (setq b (ssget "x" '((0 . "wipeout"))))
 (command "._erase" b "")
)

Lisp is good but for something not doing everyday like deleting wipeouts

Qselect, image, DELETE key wouldn't be that difficult.

qselect.JPG

As easy as using the QSELECT command see image above and hitting the delete key after hitting ok on that dialog box. However if the wipeouts are embedded in blocks they won't be erased.

Let' count the ways....

 

SELECTSIMILAR, found in a right-click or typed: simplest of them all. Everyone forget?

I just thought that I'd add one more tip in case someone can't select a wipeout to delete:

 

Use TRFRAMES in the command line.

This is a Toggle which means that simply running the command will either tuen it on or off. This toggle allows you to select Wipeout frames to be erased.
