I am cleaning up our company standart blocks and there is a font I want purged/deleted, but I keep getting the message that the font is in use.
I have checked the dimension styles, the multileader styles and cannot find it.
Is there a way to find out where it is being used?
best way is to open the file in readonly mode, use explode till there are not objects left to explode and then use qselect to find the objects using that font. Close the file without saving and open it in normal mode and change those objects. If there are too many objects then you may want save as the exploded file only with the objects in question and use it as help to find all those objects while modifying the original file.
I hope it is helpful.
I am not sure how to find the font, using quick select. I see that one can use that tool to find the text styles, but users can override text styles when creating text objects. Is there a way that one can only search for fonts, not just the text styles? Perhaps I am missing something here and would gladly appreciate someone straightening me out. Hope all is well and have a most blessed day!
You may have a empty text object in your drawing. Basically a placeholder for text where the content was deleted. Try using the Purge or -Purge command to remove "Zero-Length Geometry" and "Empty Text Objects.
The Technical Document TS18809891 discusses this and provides some additional methods for drawing file maintenance.
Hope this helps,
It might, since you're trying to clean things up, be a good idea to download StripMText.lsp, and eliminate all overrides in the MText objects.
just a suggestion to make your life easier down the road.
