hello , i had been using autocad for almost 10 years now and i always have the newer version for my line of work.

i am having trouble with the excessive styles that shows whenever i copy and paste then the problems occur after that most often. copy paste problems, fatal errors, and my computer hangs most of the time.

 

i have one solution but it takes me too much time. saving to dxf (dxf out or by save as)

 

i just want to know if there are other solutions for it , the easiest way to delete this excesive styles.

 

please help me out.

 

thanks

Hi,

 

welcome @forums.autodesk.com !

 

Without seeing one of your drawings it's difficult to give any specific tips, if you can upload one of those drawings that might help us to give better suggestions.

The first tip that might help is >>>DGN Cleanup Tool<<<

If that does not help, upload a drawing or at least let us know what styles are the problematic ones (type of style and name).

 

HTH, - alfred -

thanks sir it really helped me a lot

 

i really did not know that there was already a hotfix for this issue

 

i did try to fix the problem in 2011 , 2012 and 2013 and it works much faster than making it to dxf again

 

im spreading it out as of now to other pc as well

 

thank you very much
