Hi,

 

welcome @forums.autodesk.com !

 

first try _PURGE to get rid of unused linetypes, if that does not work you can try to use command _WBLOCK and select only those objects you need and create a new drawing based on them.

If all fails look to (and run) >>>this tool<<<.

 

HTH, - alfred -

PS: cross posting is not nice, and we don't know now if you are using AutoCAD 2007-2009 or AutoCAD 2013-2014 :smileywink:

Hi,

 

>> I am using 2012 & how to use hotfix program

In that case the forum for AutoCAD 2010/2011/2012 DWG Format would have been the right forum to ask. :smileywink:

For 2012 you can download the tool >>>here<<<.

Hi,

 

>> Also check this Autodesk Apps

Can you tell us something about the difference between the official tool from the Autodesk site and yours?

(And why is your tool placed within the Civil3D group and not the one for plain Autodesk as the problem is not only occuring within Civil3D)

The official tool doesn't have an option to do a batch process.

And the official tool will not purge the affected xref files.

This will search all the xref to find the DGN data.



(And why is your tool placed within the Civil3D group and not the one for plain Autodesk as the problem is not only occuring within Civil3D)


This tool also available for Plain Autodesk
Plain Autocad
