Delete/Purge Unused Viewport Types - 2013

Has anyone found a solution for deleteting unused viewport types from Revit Arch 2013? I have a project that had some detail views imported from another project and brought along some unwanted viewport styles. Purge Unused does no good. There are no instances of the unwanted viewports in the project either.

Hi. I have recreated what you have and used purge unused. When the dialog opens, you will find viewports under other styles. Just check what you don't need and it will be purged. If that doesn't work then it is either still somewhere in the project or there is a bug.

 

Hope this helps.

I believe there are certain system-level Viewports that are hardwired and cannot be purged.  The trick is to use those as your company standard so that your other ones which are not hardwired can be deleted.

 

Would love to be proven wrong.

I believe the non standard viewports began as system viewports that were renammed. So essentially they are the hardwired viewports that can not be deleted.

 

Bummer.

Okay, I've had the same problem. The "hardwired" explanation makes sense, now.
