Purge tool not working
Read 481 times

This week my purge tool started not working. This was rock solid in v21.

Exiting and reopening the drawing helped yesterday, as did saving from dwg to tcw (previously not needed for purging), but not today. I hit purge and then am left sitting there like Han Solo and Chewie with no jump to light speed.

Anyone else experiencing this?

This tool was one of the main reasons for us selecting Pro over Deluxe.

The current file (and I have had this problem with files from multiple sources) is about 5Mb converted from a .dwg came down to about 2Mb after manually clearing out blocks but still won't purge.

Works like a charm here, just tested it on a file 12.7 Mb, resaved the file with new name and was now on 7.49 Mb
I selected all except Layer's, the file is an original tcw, maybe that have something to do with it ?

Thanks, Torfinn.

I don't think it is the files. I just shut down and opened up one of my 2015 .tcw files and it would not purge either.

Just to make it clear, i see i write in a way that migth be easy to missunderstand, the re-saving was after a purge. of that 12.7 Mb file.
