Is there a way to determine the number of styles in a drawing?

Hi,

 

AFAIK not with 2010 (without dev).

With Civil3D2012 you have a command _PURGESTYLES that shows a number (of purgeable) styles plus copy&paste of the list is supported. Maybe this is a help.

_PURGESTYLES gives me 552 styles. So I'll go with that  for now. Thanks.

It looks like there are about 70 unpurgable standard styles that won't show in that list. But it's a good start.

Hi Allen,

 

sorry, I have never did a check of this number. And as the count is for purgeable styles then the "Standard"-styles will not be counted within that group.

I find it interesting how you got the number 70 that fast - without having an option to count anything in another way yet :smileywink:

Hello Alfred,

 

I used the old manual guesstimate method. I started a drawing with no template then used the purgestyles command. After that I'm left with a Standard style for each item that uses a style. I expanded each item in the prospector and counted how many times I saw Styles. I got just under 70 and rounded up.

 

Thanks for the help!

Curious, why would you need to know the total number of styles in a drawing.

I need to give an estimate of the time to revise them.

The purge command only gives you the unused styles, there are styles embedded in the command settings that are considered "used" styles and will not show up in that list that represent a significant percentage of the total styles.  If you have a fully customized template you could be looking at missing out on several hundred styles.

 

I, too, am looking for a way to count the styles as part of some purge testing I'm doing.
