Remove symbols and blocks

During time I have created a lot of symbols and annotations, but some of them I do not use anymore. I have deleted them from all classes, but they are still present in the projectsymbolstyle.dwg.
How can I remove them from there?

thanks

You will need to purge this blocks out of the drawing.
Don't do a purge all otherwise you will get rid of everything.

All you need to do is when the purge dialog opens up is to expand it to show all the blocks and individually select the blocks you want to purge out of the file.

This does not help me any further. Is there someone else who has a solution for this?

I too want to customise a Projsymbolstyle.dwg by purging unwanted blocks. Many of the unwanted blocks in this dwg that I want to purge are unavailable for purging. How do I make all the blocks contained in the PSS dwg available for purging. Help anybody ! ?

 

Thanks
