Please see SCREENSHOT VG. I imported an AutoCAD file call A-LAN-CEN-XP-01.dwg. Now I would like to delete the drawing from the project. I can't find it anywhere in the project. It's lost. Do I have to go through every project view and every display setting per view to seek out the location of this .dwg in order to select and delete it? Or is there another way?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did you insert the CAD or did you link it? If you linked it, go to Manage tab --> Manage Links --> CAD Formats and Remove the link.
If you inserted the CAD file directly (shame on you), go to Manage tab --> Purge Unused, click Select None, then scroll down to where you see the name of the file. If it's not being used in the project, you'll be able to see it here. Just check the box next to it and click OK.
If you don't see it there, then there's still an instance of it somewhere in your project, and you'll have to hunt it down.
"shame on you". I know, I know. I feel the shame. Now I know better. Thank you for the reply. Your suggestion to purge the file worked. It was burried in a group.
