PURGE (Command)

Removes unused items, such as block definitions and layers, from the drawing.


The Purge dialog box is displayed.

Unused named objects can be removed from the current drawing. These include block definitions, dimension styles, groups, layers, linetypes, and text styles. Zero-length geometry and empty text objects can also be removed.

Note: The PURGE command will not remove unnamed objects (zero-length geometry or empty text and mtext objects) from blocks or locked layers.
